LSU head coach Les Miles addressed the media on Tuesday and said that running back Leonard Fournetted sprained his ankle during the teams scrimmage on Tuesday and is currently in a walking boot.

Miles did not say when Fournette would be able to return but suggested that it was not a serious injury.

"Guy in my office is wearing a boot for a third degree sprain. He's a former college player, came down on a guys foot playing basketball. If he had to play in 3 weeks, he'd be out." I needed a good laugh, thank you.

Is he one of the best athletes in the country in top condition with 24 hr trainers and therapy available?

LSU should be able to handle Wisconsin without playing Fournette

Yea just let fournette watch film and run with a red jersey on until the season starts. Better yet why dont we just keep fournette in a bubble and only let him out on game days. Everybody needs practice.

Maybe he'll think twice about rough housing with his teammates in the parking lot next time!!

In all seriousness, if he's out for the opener and doesn't get to pad some stats for the Heisman race, I will melt a little bit.

As long as it's not a high ankle sprain, I think he will be okay. All the people saying they shouldn't scrimmage and just watch film need to understand they need to be in shape to absorb all the hits they will receive in games. There would be more injuries during the season if all they did was just sit in bubble wrap drinking tea in the offseason. Hope this bad luck stops though

Settle down. He'll be fine. More than two weeks to get right. Plenty of time.

:lol: at the people who don't think he needs to be in a scrimmage. You obviously don't realize the shape that your body needs to be in to absorb the hits he will absorb all year. This is just a product of a necessary risk and it will be okay.

The best word NOT in his injury description is the word "high". Its not a "high ankle sprain". That is a very good thing. He should be fine and even if Guice has to beat up Wisconsin instead of Leonard, for the team its not the end of the world. I'm sure Fournette cares more about a Championship than a Heisman Trophy.

Relax. It's just a sprain. The walking boot is a precautionary measure. He'll be ready against Wisconsin. Believe that...

Guy in my office is wearing a boot for a third degree sprain. He's a former college player, came down on a guys foot playing basketball. If he had to play in 3 weeks, he'd be out. Wearing the boot doesn't mean it's nothing. Just hope it is.

The guy in your office won't be treated the same way an elite athlete will be.

@texastigerr after scrolling through the comment section and reading the three comments that you posted on this thread; I have come to the conclusion that you're a cuck.

Hate to see anyone get hurt, but we don't need to rush his return...Guice can easily reload into that slot for a game or two if necessary so that both are in good shape down the stretch. If nothing else, this will push everyone else on the team to be ready to kick some arse.

If he needs any extra parts for his ankle mine isn't being used for anything all that important.

we'll bouncs back from this in good fashion. he will recover fast, he's not stupid enough to further the injury. As much as he wants to play, he will have his prayers and questions answered. Buga Nation!!!

If its nothing, then why is he in a boot? It must be bad enough to be in a boot.

Boots are commonly used as a precautionary measure for athletes. They lighten the load on ankles/lower legs, thus improving recovery time for even mild injuries.

Good point. Most of the o linemen wear knee braces in games to prevent hyper extension. It's a similar precaution.

no reason for him to be in all out scrimmages. They know everything they need to know about him. Enough of this old school BS where everyone has to practice to play. Jesus be smart for a change.

It's about timing and others learning what to do on LFs runs.
