Brian Kelly gives an update on Sevyn Banks’ status

In LSU’s first true road game of the season, the Tigers traveled to the Plains of Auburn, Alabama, to take on Bryan Harsin, Tank Bigsby and the Auburn Tigers.

During the opening kickoff, a scary moment happened when LSU defensive back Sevyn Banks suffered a head injury and had to be carted off the field on a stretcher. Banks, a transfer from Ohio State, was starting to come into his own on the defensive side of the ball as he was starting to pick up schemes and concepts a lot better and in a flash, everything changed.

Brian Kelly released the latest update on Banks when he met with the media on Friday before LSU’s win over Arkansas.

“That’s a week-to-week situation,” Kelly said. “He’s better. He’s been in conditioning but I can’t offer you anything other than he feels good. He’s got full mobility and flexion. But that is a determination being made based on MRIs. Which, he’s scheduled to get another one here. I don’t know if it’s Tuesday or the following Tuesday. But, he’s made similar progress that Major Burns has made.”

I know he isn’t back on the field yet, but it is always great to get positive updates on any injured players.
