Injury News: LSU running back Logan Diggs not expected to play vs. Florida

LSU fans got the news they were waiting for on Saturday morning as it was announced that quarterback Jayden Daniels, who was listed as probable with a head injury earlier in the week, will make the start against Florida.

It wasn’t all positive news on the injury front, however. Running back Logan Diggs was listed as questionable on Thursday with an upper-body injury, and on Friday, his status was downgraded to doubtful.

Saturday morning, On3’s Matt Zenitz reported that Diggs is not expected to play.

Without Diggs available, LSU would instead turn to Josh Williams and John Emery Jr., as well as possibly true freshman Kaleb Jackson and veteran Noah Cain, as well as production on the ground from Daniels, who led the team in rushing last week against Alabama.

Diggs has been a nice addition to this offense, which struggled to find production on the ground outside of Daniels last fall. If he’s unable to go, LSU will likely have to lean more heavily on the passing game than it already has been.
