Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports
LSU head coach Ed Orgeron announced Thursday after practice that starting offensive tackle Austin Deculus and starting safety Grant Delpit will both be out vs. Arkansas on Saturday.

Delpit has been dealing with an ankle injury since the Auburn game on October 26 and will be replaced by true freshman Maurice “Mo” Hampton.

Deculus suffered an injury vs. Alabama on Nov. 9 and did not play last week against Ole Miss. He was replaced by Adrian Magee, which is what Coach O is planning on for the Arkansas game.

Get healthy Tigers, and I hope Hampton comes out balling. GT!

Devonte Lee not wanting to move to safety is insane. If he insists on staying at WR he will be portal bound after next year

@LSUBadger, I don't know why you got downvoted like that, but I said this this past off-season. Guy was listed as athlete, looked better on defense in HS, yet decided to want to force his way on offense. LSU is going to have some monsters coming in at WR next year, Palmer is a monster waiting his turn now. McMath will be top 5 in rotation again next year if he stays. I mean Sullivan was moved to TE and was never seen again. He was a guy who also had the option to play defense yet forced his way as a WR. He's going to end up getting lost in the shuffle, just watch.

Absolutely silly these guys (Lee, Sullivan, etc) insist on playing out of their natural positions, you want to play for the #1 team or sit the bench for the #1 team? Just because you help out on D when needed doesn't mean you can never play offense again.

Our 2020 recruits are probably better than Arkansas starters, so lets get some people healthy.

Best news possible. Injured players should probably rest until the SEC Championship game (although with A&M as a recruiting rival and bad blood after last year, LSU will want to beat up on A&M). Delpit clearly is hurting and can't change directions, recipe for disaster at safety. Hope he gets healthy

I'll settle for 2 wins & the Defense not allowing 600+ Yds. But that's just me....

Looking forward to seeing Mr. Hampton.

Been wondering how the other Frosh DBs were doing, Flotts going to great, Hampton must be showing something in practice, glad he's going to get the opportunity to experience getting a start

Hampton big time recruit, impressive offer sheet. He will be a good one. Maybe it starts this Saturday. 6'0" 214. Good size.

Rivals had him listed at 5’11” 190

Also excited to see him on the diamond. Turned down millions to come play both sports. Could be the next Jones or Mitchell in the making.

Time to test out everyone

So that means Magee will be playing at his third different position on the o-line this year. Not bad for a guy that everyone said wouldn't see the field.
