LSU quarterback Joe Burrow led the Tigers in rushing vs. Ole Miss last Saturday with 97 yards and one touchdown. He now has 154 rushing yards and a pair of scores on the season.

On Monday, head coach Ed Orgeron commented on Burrow ability to run the ball and said that he is hesitant to do more of it as he wants to keep him healthy.

Q. Burrow's running ability, was that something that you guys knew he had in him before you got him and obviously you kind of you knew he was athletic but utilizing him so much was that kind of a pleasant surprise once he got here or did you know that all along?

ED ORGERON: We knew it all along. I'm the one that's a little apprehensive of doing it. I think Coach Ensminger wants to do it a lot more and obviously I want to keep him healthy. But we knew he could do it.
