Logan Diggs and Armoni Goodwin available against Grambling

LSU’s running back room was limited against Florida State. Logan Diggs, Armoni Goodwin, and John Emery Jr. were all out.

The group is working its way back to full strength, with Diggs and Goodwin set to be available on Saturday.

Kelly said LSU didn’t feel comfortable playing Diggs last week due to his lack of full-speed practice reps.

Diggs’ workload at practice was increased this week and LSU feels good about getting him in there against Grambling before SEC play heats up next week.

It’s still not clear how much we’ll see of Goodwin this week. He’s healthy, but with his injury history, LSU might want to be safe unless he’s at 100%.

You won’t see Emery just yet, but he’s set to return next week.

By the time Emery returns, LSU will have twice the amount of options at RB that it did against Florida State. It comes at a needed time after the run game struggled on Sunday night.
