LSU coach Ed Orgeron says the team does not have enough healthy players for a full practice.

"We don't have enough players to do the Tiger Bowl scrimmage tomorrow, and we don't have enough players healthy enough to have a full practice today," Orgeron told reporters Wednesday.

The 4-4 Tigers are off this week but have been riddled with injuries. They travel to No. 3-ranked Alabama next week and will be heavy underdogsβ€”no matter their practice reps.

LSU has lost quarterback Myles Brennan, wide receiver Kayshon Boutte and cornerbacks Eli Ricks and Derek Stingley Jr., among other players, to injuries this season.

The result has been inconsistent on-field performance that led Orgeron and LSU to agree to part ways earlier this season.

Orgeron chose to coach the remainder of the 2021 season rather than leave the team midseason.
