Starting tailback Logan Diggs, who missed last week’s game against Florida with an upper-body injury, was listed as doubtful to play in Saturday’s game against the Panthers by coach Brian Kelly on Thursday.
Diggs, a transfer addition from Notre Dame, has been a revelation for the Tigers’ run game this season. He leads LSU running backs with 113 carries and 635 yards, and he’s added six touchdowns on the year.

Assuming Diggs isn’t able to play, LSU will then likely turn to Josh Williams and Noah Cain, as well as true freshmen Kaleb Jackson and Trey Holly. John Emery Jr., who saw quite a bit of action in Diggs’ absence last week, was lost early in the game with a torn ACL that will cost him the remainder of the season.
