LSU tight end Dillon Gordon has been released from the hospital after sustaining multiple non life-threatening injuries in a fight at an off-campus bar early Tuesday morning, according to The Advocate. Although Gordon is fine, coach Les Miles doesn’t want his players to risk their safety at bars anymore.
“I’m cutting it off,” Miles said Tuesday according to The Advocate. “It’s just not worth it. The reason you go out is because you want social interaction. Social interaction can take place at home, at class, can take place at a number of places. You don’t have to go to a fight night club.”
Miles is clearly trying to take a proactive approach after his senior tight end came out of the fight with a few cuts and nothing more. Police are still searching for the suspect who stabbed Gordon at Reggie’s bar.
Gordon missed most of his senior year after suffering an Achilles tendon injury that required surgery. He will try and earn another year of eligibility by earning a medical redshirt from the NCAA. No word has been given on when that decision will be made.
