Brian Kelly updates injury report for LSU entering Arkansas week

LSU was without several key players on Saturday against Mississippi State. Their absences didn’t prove too costly in an easy 41-14 win, but in what could be a tougher test against Arkansas next weekend, the Tigers need to get those players back.

Coach Brian Kelly offered some positive news in that regard on Monday. Linebacker Omar Speights, JACK Ovie Oghoufo and tight end Mason Taylor all missed the game against the Bulldogs, but the trio all received “probable” designations from Kelly entering the week.

One player the Tigers won’t have is starting nickel Greg Brooks Jr., who missed the game against Mississippi State with a “medical emergency.” Kelly didn’t go into much detail on Brooks’ status Monday beyond saying that he won’t be available against the Razorbacks this week.

LSU will look to start its SEC slate 2-0 as it returns home to host Arkansas with several key players hopefully back in the fold.
