During his weekly press conference on Monday afternoon, head coach Ed Orgeron provided an update on cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. and defensive lineman Glen Logan.

Derek Stingley Jr. was hospitalized over the weekend with an illness but could be back as early as Tuesday as they are still awaiting medical test results.

Glen Logan, who did not dress out vs. Mississippi State, will also be out for Vanderbilt this Saturday but could be back the following week for Missouri.

Orgeron did not say why Stingley Jr. was hospitalized or elaborate on Logan's situation.

Q. Good afternoon. Can you give us an update on Derek Stingley and Glen Logan, and to whatever degree you can, what happened with Derek on Friday?

ED ORGERON: Yeah. I think Derek is going to be back. I talked to Jack. We're waiting for all the medical exams to clear. But I expect him back as early as maybe tomorrow. I'm not sure. Glen Logan will not be available for this week and he will be available for Missouri.

Q. Coach, if Derek comes back today or tomorrow or Wednesday, do you think he'll be able to play him or does his illness make you more cautious than a regular injury or something?

ED ORGERON: I'm hoping he can play then. Obviously he makes a difference on our team. We need that. It's a position we need. We're very short there, but we're always going to put his health first. I'm going to listen to the doctors. I'm going to talk to his mamma and daddy. If the doctors say he can play and Derek says he can play and momma and daddy says it's okay, he's going to play. If not, he won't. But I expect him to play. I expect him maybe to be back in practice as early as tomorrow. But we'll see.

Sounds like Logan might have been smoking some stuff similar in color to his hair.

Are suspended players usually on the sidelines? I can’t remember
