Orgeron: Guice to Miss Syracuse Game

Coach O: Derrius Guice 'very questionable' for Saturday

LSU coach Ed Orgeron said on his radio show Wednesday night that running back Derrius Guice will not play against Syracuse on Saturday night.

Guice suffered an injury at Mississippi State, and missed practice the last three days.

It's a growing concern after Oregeron previously stated Monday the ailment was "minor" and he expected the rusher to be "fine", per Ross Dellenger and Mike Gegenheimer of The Advocate.

Orgeron had also indicated the running back did not practice Tuesday.

The junior running back has rushed 57 times for 300 yards and four touchdowns in LSU's first three games this year.

Guice's absence will undoubtedly leave a big hole in the LSU backfield.

If Guice is unavailable, Darrel Williams has seen the most action thus far of LSU's other running backs, gaining 159 yards.

With Fournette in the National Football League and playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars this season, the Tigers' backfield depth isn't as impressive as it typically is.

That's a more pessimistic assessment than Guice received earlier in the week.
