During his weekly radio show on Wednesday night, head coach Ed Orgeorn revealed that left tackle Saahdiq Charles will not play this Saturday vs. Ole Miss and right tackle Austin Deculus will be a "game-time decision."

Later in the show Orgeorn said that Deculus could miss multiple games. Per The Advocate:

Left tackle Saahdiq Charles will not play, LSU coach Ed Orgeron said on his weekly call-in show.

On the other side, right tackle Austin Deculus will be a "game-time decision," Orgeron said, later adding that "right now" he didn't think the junior would play and that he could miss multiple games. Orgeron did not disclose Deculus' injury.
Deculus suffered an injury vs. Alabama and had to come out but was able to return and finish the game. While he was out, left guard Adrian Magee moved to right tackle and Ed Ingram went in at left guard.

Orgeron said earlier this week that backup tackle Badara Traore will play at right tackle if Deculus is out and that they will "experiment with Adrian Magee at left tackle."

Charles has sat out four games this season due to what Orgeron has called a "coach's decisions." He has played vs. Texas, Vanderbilt, Florida, Auburn and Alabama.

Why did Charles play against Vanderbilt? Never should have chosen Vanderbilt over ole miss

It'll be good to give Ingram a chance to get back into his groove and maybe get Hines some reps as well. He hasn't played as much this year as I expected mostly due to Magee playing so much better

[Aren't going to see either one until A&M.] Yep, Saadiq will finish his 6 game suspension and Deculus will be ready to go for A&M and Postseason. Ole Piss and Ar-Kansas shouldn't be too much trouble unless we start to lay an egg.

I think if "we start to lay an egg" the Killer Bs (Burrow and Brady) will come up with something to protect against those potential weaknesses.
