LSU’s offense could be without an important player for the rest of the year. Coach Les Miles said Monday he thought tight end Dillon Gordon would miss the entirety of the Tigers’ remaining schedule after aggravating an Achilles injury last weekend.
“I can’t imagine he’ll be back the rest of the season,” Miles said, according to NOLA.com’s Ron Higgins.
Gordon originally hurt the tendon during LSU’s second game of the season against Auburn. He missed the following three games before returning to action against Florida. Unfortunately, the senior’s comeback was not long-lasting. Gordon caught an eight-yard pass in the first quarter and was writhing in pain after being tackled.
The 300-pound tight end served as an important blocker and an occasional weapon in the passing game for the Tigers. He caught six passes for 88 yards during the 2013 season.
