LSU head coach Les Miles spoke with the media after practice on Tuesday and suggested that freshman defensive back Donte Jackson might take over as LSU’s starting punt returner.

Jackson replaced the injured cornerback Tre’Davious White on return duties against Western Kentucky. Per The Advocate:

“Donte is one of the fastest guys on our team, if not the fastest. Very elusive, great ball skills. We look forward to seeing him play,” Miles said.

“We like him there,” the coach said when asked about him returning punts. “Not that we don’t like T White, it’s just we don’t know that we’ll actually turn that duty back over to him if we’ve got a guy that has already set up and done it.”

Shucksm. At first glance I thought the headline said Miles replaced the punter. Too bad that's not the case.
