Will Leonard Fournette be able to go for LSU this week?
That remains to be seen, according to Tigers coach Les Miles, who said Friday that Fournette’s playing status would likely be a game-time decision.
“I think Leonard Fournette is a go or, if not a go, we won’t know until game day,” Miles said in a video posted on the school’s website.
LSU’s star running back was seen limping off the field toward the end of the Tigers’ 16-14 loss to Wisconsin after suffering a lower leg injury on a hit. Fournette also dealt with an ankle sprain during the preseason.Fournette rushed for 138 yards on 23 carries in Week 1.
Miles played coy this week regarding Fournette’s health, refusing to answer whether or not the running back practiced on Wednesday.
The Tigers will host Jacksonville State for their home opener on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
