Greg Brooks Jr. out for Arkansas game, Brian Kelly says

LSU will be without starting nickel Greg Brooks Jr. when it hosts Arkansas in Week 4 on Saturday, coach Brian Kelly said Monday.

Brooks was not with the team during Saturday’s 41-14 win over Mississippi State as he is dealing with what Kelly referred to after the game as a “medical emergency.”

Speaking to the media Monday, Kelly couldn’t provide many details about Brooks’ condition other than to say he will not be available when the Tigers take on the Razorbacks.

“I don’t have a lot that I can report on Greg, it is a family matter so I am not going to speak on the family’s behalf,” Kelly said. “If there’s anything I can get to you further after I speak with the family, we’ll certainly give you the information. But Greg is dealing with a medical emergency, and he will not be available.”

Without Brooks, LSU started transfer Andre Sam at safety with Sage Ryan and true freshman Ryan Yaites seeing reps at nickel. That dynamic will likely continue into the near future with Brooks’ status unclear.
