LSU head coach Ed Orgeron provided updates on few players during a stop on the Tiger Tour in Covington, LA Thursday night.

Orgeron is hopeful that injured edge rusher Sci Martin, who suffered a serious knee injury during the first week of spring practice will be back for the start of the season. He did not reveal the details of the injury. Per The Advocate:

“It’s a lot better than we thought it was going to be,” he said of the injury. “I think we’ll get him back for the season, but I can’t… I’m optimistic that he’s going to be fine.”
Orgeron also said that pass rusher Arden Key is expected to return to the team in June after taking a leave of absence.

Defensive lineman Isaiah Washington missed the final few weeks of spring for academic reasons and his status remains uncertain, according to Orgeron.

Linebacker Donnie Alexander is still recovering from a torn labrum surgery and Orgeron hopes to have him back for fall camp.

Key is set to return in June from a leave of absence. Washington’s status remains uncertain, Orgeron said. He missed the final few weeks of spring for academic reasons.

Alexander, LSU’s projected starting inside linebacker, underwent surgery for a torn labrum in his right shoulder during the first week of April. He remains in a sling, Orgeron said Thursday.

“It’s going to be a while,” Orgeron said of his recovery. “We expect him to be ready to go in camp.”
Offensive lineman Adrian Magee, who was arrested on April 26 for simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, a felony, remains suspended and has hired an attorney to represent him.

Redshirt sophomore Adrian Magee remains suspended after his arrest, and Orgeron will “let the process take place” in the case, he said Thursday.

Damn, I didn't know about Martin. Of course, we could use all 4 of them, especially Sci and Alexander considering how young we are at LB this year. And IIRC, they were going to try Sci at OLB. As for Magee, if what is true about him committing the burglary (which it seems likely by all accounts/reports), especially in his LSU gear, I don't even know if I want him on the team, just my opinion. I believe in 2nd chances, as I had one (or 2 or 3), but IMO, even if he does get another chance, it should be at another school. The way it was reported just says lack of decency and lack of respect, not only for himself, but for the school and fellow students, his teammates, coaches, etc. That said, I hope he has a good lawyer and he'll have his day in court to face it all. Hopefully, this doesn't have a lasting negative impact on his life, even though what he did was wrong.
