LSU head coach Ed Orgeron addressed the media after the Tigers first Bowl practice on Tuesday and said that Arden Key is questionable for the Citrus Bowl and is not practicing.


Key has played with a variety of injuries this season and underwent surgery for a broken finger at the end of the season. If he ends up playing vs. the Irish in the Citrus Bowl it will likely be his last game as a Tiger as he is expected to the enter the NFL Draft after the game.

LSU and Notre Dame play Jan. 1 in Orlando, FL at noon CT on ABC.

Just play the game and quit messing around. You are on a T-E-A-M!! Be a team player and quit putting personal rewards ahead of your commitment. The team and coaches helped you be where you are. This is a character issue and people should stop giving players a pass if they could play and don't. And, unless the injury is a real injury, tape it up, put a brace on and get out there!! And a side note, this is not an LSU fan bashing an LSU player for no reason. I cheered for him every game he played. I don't understand any player doing this to his team at any school. Play the game!

Seems like a pattern is going on at 7su.

Now if I had taken the attitude of some of these gifted fellas, no employer in their right mind would have hired me. This is why pro athletes, some not all, live with the mentality that they are above the rules because no one holds them accountable. If I were these owners, I would not draft a single player who holds out or plays subpar in order to be draft ready. That logic makes no sense. Instead of being money driven, take advantage of the free EDUCATION the school has granted you and get a degree that you can fall back on. Look beyond the game like a Peyton Manning who earned his bachelors and Masters degree in four years. Thanks for nothing AK.

Well I mean it's not like he's getting a degree from the likes of Duke or Stanford. He owes LSU nothing.

Give me players like Guice any day over divas like Arden Key. What a disappointment!

Just another example of today’s modern athletes. Knows he will be drafted high because of his athletic ability and high ceiling. Doesn’t want to risk further injury and miss out on his big payday. I understand, we’re talking about life changing money here. However, if you aren’t going to play, sit out and let someone else have a shot. This back and forth crap is getting old. I say thanks, and good luck in the NFL! Next!

Never a doubt in my mind. His passion is less than desirable. Say what you want, this kid wasn't in shape early ONLY because he didn't feel like it.

I thought he and guice were going to carry the team this year... Both will be stars in the NFL if they can stay healthy

Not surprised, has been a disappointment all year. He was hurt, didn't know if he wanted to play football, etc. Will be interesting to see what kind of shape he's in for the combines. Teams certainly will question his work ethic and commitment.

While Arden Key has unceremoniously faded into the memory book of LSU football, he did serve as an example of how not to spend the off-season prior to your "money" year.

Wow....what a completely unproductive year he has had... No problem with him sitting out his junior year in anticipation of going pro, if that is what he chooses...however, I do have a problem with him occupying a scholarship that thousands of others would have given anything to have. That said, I'll assume good intent and just suffice to say that he seems fairly injury prone...

Probably cost himself $5-$10 mil this season.

I understand he doesn't want to risk further injury in the bowl game, however he has not had a very productive year. I'm sure the scouts will be sniffing around to see if he is truly focused on the next level
