BATON ROUGE, La. — After missing LSU’s last two games with an injured ankle, Leonard Fournette is back.
LSU interim coach Ed Orgeron announced Monday morning that he expects Fournette to play this weekend, and the running back took positive strides toward doing so by practicing for the first time since he re-injured his ankle three weeks ago at Auburn.
Watch below as Fournette (No. 7) takes a toss from quarterback Danny Etling in the open period of LSU’s Monday practice.
Fournette has missed three games this season with the ankle injury, but has rushed for at least 100 yards every time he has touched the field.
Fournette’s replacement, Derrius Guice, also received first-team reps Monday, as the pair rotated snaps. Orgeron has indicated multiple times, including once Monday, that he would like to see Fournette and Guice on the field together and that ways to achieve this are in the works.
