LSU head coach Ed Orgeron joined Baton Rouge radio show "Off the Bench" Tuesday morning and provided an update on injured offensive guard Damien Lewis.

Orgeron said that Lewis' "early prognosis looked a little bit more positive," but that he would not practice this week.


Later in the day, Orgeron was on the College Football Playoff Media Teleconference and provide some further updates:

Q. This morning you gave a little update on Damien Lewis and said he wasn't going to practice this week. If you get him back, obviously, things are normal, but how will things kind of adjust? Will it be kind of the same way you all played it on Saturday, or in what ways do you all kind of go around him?

ED ORGERON: I think we put Adrian at that right guard since he did so well, we'll do that first, and having Ed at left guard. I think that would be a natural deal. We haven't talked about that at the snap yet. We'll be breaking down Clemson on Thursday, and Jack will have a more definitive answer for us on whether he thinks he'll be ready for the football game. So we'll start practicing with Adrian at right guard and Ed at left.

Q. Last year it was something that might have been more influential than this year. This year the depth is there. How does it feel to have that for such a pivotal point in the season as this?

ED ORGERON: It's a big plus. It's a big plus to have that. Also, Dare Rosenthal will be eligible to play in this game. That gives us more depth at tackle. So if Damien comes back, we're as healthy as we've been on this football team all year.

It's crazy that just last year the biggest issue for the Tigers was how thin they were on the O & D Lines. 1 year later were as stacked as I can remember on the O-Line & while not as deep at the D-Line still much better shape than 2018.
