This week the LSU Tigers are preparing to take on the No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa. On Monday, head coach Ed Orgeron made it known that running back Tre Bradford would be available for the game.

“He’s been eligible,” Orgeron said. “He’s a track guy. He had a lingering hamstring injury for a while. He’s better to where we can get him out to practice, and hopefully, he can do very well.”

Bradford returned to the Tigers after transferring to Oklahoma prior to the season. He since returned back to LSU and now is available for Alabama. He gives them some help at a running back position that has struggled all season outside of the Kentucky and Florida games. Orgeron also stated that Chasen Hines will be back.

Then there is the bad news when it comes to even more injuries.

The Tigers won’t have Sage Ryan on the boundary and Cordale Flott didn’t practice on Monday and likely wouldn’t on Tuesday. Ryan is yet another cornerback injury that will only further hinder this defense on the backend against the Tide.

The team will need all available hands for this game against the Tide. Being a four-touchdown underdog shows the uphill climb that is coming this weekend. Even if the Tigers play their best game, they likely need help from Alabama to win this game due to their injury history.
