LSU Will be Without One of Their Top Receivers Against Georgia
LSU will be without their third-leading receiver today against #2 Georgia in Baton Rouge.
LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron says Dee Anderson is out with an injury. Orgeron did not explain the nature of Anderson's injury, or other issue, that will hold him out of the game. He is LSU's third leading receiver in yardage this season, but doesn't have a touchdown on the year.
Players that could fill Anderson's role this weekend include Stephen Sullivan, Derrick Dillon, Bossier City's Terrace Marshall Jr, and recently converted defensive back Jontre Kirklin.
The most interesting case for playing time could be Kirklin. The former all-state quarterback from Lutcher has been practicing on offense this week, after starting his career at LSU as a defensive back. He was a 3-star recruit by all of the major recruiting services, while leading the Lutcher Bulldogs to a Louisiana State Championship. While in high school, Kirklin accounted for over 10,000 combined yards between passing and rushing.
