One offensive starter is not traveling to Auburn this week.
That’s according to The Advocate’s Ross Dellenger, who reports that Toby Weathersby did not make the trip from Baton Rouge, La., to Auburn.
The starting right tackle sprained his ankle in the first half of last week’s game against Mississippi State, and was seen in a walking boot this week. LSU coach Les Miles was vague about the sophomore’s status during the week, and divulged a coy response to a question about Weathersby’s ankle.
“His status is healthy and alive,” Miles said.
Sophomore Maea Teuhema is expect to replace Weathersby at right tackle this week.
