Brian Kelly says Lance Heard will continue to rotate in on the offensive line

LSU tried out some different things with its offensive line last weekend.

Five-star freshman Lance Heard got plenty of time with the starters at right tackle. Emery Jones would bump over to guard with Miles Frazier getting a breather.

Kelly said LSU will continue to use Heard, sticking with a similar rotation to the one it used against Grambling.

We know this staff isn’t afraid to play freshmen on the offensive line after Will Campbell and Emery Jones took over the tackle spots last year. Heard’s talent generated buzz throughout fall camp and we’re seeing it earn him playing time now.

The offensive line struggled in spots against Florida State. Saturday’s game with Mississippi State will be LSU’s first real test to see if this group improved over the last couple of weeks.

The Mississippi State game is where LSU made a statement last year after a 1-1 start. LSU finds itself in the same spot again as it looks to notch its first FBS win of the year.
