LSU head coach Les Miles was spoke on the weekly SEC Coaches Teleconference Wedneday and talked about limiting Leonard Fournette's carries so that he does not get worn out down the season.

Miles said that Fournette's number of carries are all based on game feel and varies from week to week with no "pitch count" in place for the talented sophomore.

One of the few times I believe Miles will do as he says.

Miles: "He[Fournette]didn't take a snap in the fourth quarter last week". I look for the QB to take most of the snaps even though Fournette has taken one this season.

RB's have the shortest life spans as players. He should definitely take it easy when he can and probably go pro after his junior season.

you will see his carries drop into the teens the next two games........go up a little for USC and UF, will be low teens if that against WKU, and will be ridden like a horse for the final 4 game stretch
