The Tigers will be getting a major piece back on offense ahead of Saturday’s key home game against the No. 7 Ole Miss Rebels.
Running back Armoni Goodwin has missed the last three games with what was described as a “significant” hamstring injury. He had surgery to repair it and is expected to take the field this week for the Tigers after a successful procedure.
Before his injury, Goodwin saw the bulk of the carries in LSU’s backfield. On the year, he has 34 carries for 199 yards and five touchdowns. During his absence, Josh Williams stepped up to lead the backfield.

Brian Kelly said Beau Lowery and the training/medical staff were amazing in the work they did to get him ready after missing games.

It looks like LSU’s backfield will be at full strength for a crucial matchup against the Rebels, who enter this one undefeated and ranked as the No. 7 team in the country.
