LSU head coach Ed Orgeron spoke on the SEC Coaches Teleconference Wednesday and was asked about tight end Jamal Pettigrew who returned to practice this week for the first time since he had ACL surgery back in August.

Specifically, Orgeron was asked if there was any chance Pettigrew could play in LSU's bowl game?

"We don't know that yet, Orgeron said. "Obviously, it's good to see him out there. Jack Marucci our trainer does a tremendous job with these guys. He's running routes, going through drills. We'll continue to test him out."

"I think it's a little early to tell whether or not he can play in the bowl game but obviously, we would love to have him."
Pettigrew, a sophomore from New Orleans, LA (Saint Augustine) tore his ACL back in July during a non-contact workout. He played in all 13 games in 2017 as a redshirt freshman and was expected to have a larger role in LSU's offense this season as a backup to Foster Moreau.

That should be definitive no. It’s no point in having him play the bowl game even if he could.
