Head coach Ed Orgeron revealed Monday that cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. suffered a sprained ankle in the Missouri game by tripping on a down marker on the field but played through the injury and finished the game. Per The Advocate:

"He sprained his ankle on the down marker coming off the field," Orgeron said. "He was playing — I don't know what part of the game that happened — but after that, he was playing on a sprained ankle."

Athletic trainers tended to Stingley on the field. Stingley returned two plays later, but he clearly looked hobbled the rest of the game. Stingley finished with five tackles.

"He didn't look the same," Orgeron said. "Some people would've been out the game, but he wanted to play. Just a freak accident on the down marker."

We need Sting. Only true football player on that "defensive" unit.
