The hits just keep on coming for the LSU Tigers and their offensive line. After playing in the game against Arkansas without starting guard Ed Ingram and Chasen Hines, they now have another injury to the starting five.

This season left tackle Cam Wire has been in and out of the lineup with various injuries. On Monday when speaking to the local media, head coach Ed Orgeron was asked about Cam Wire’s status.

“I don’t think he is going to play the rest of the season”, Orgeron said. “It doesn’t look like it.”

Wire left the game against Arkansas and was replaced by freshman Garrett Dellenger. He will likely be the starter moving forward unless the team wants to use Marcus Dumervil. Dumervil was used primarily as an inline tight end in jumbo packages to help the run game.

It remains to be seen if either Ingram and/or Hines will be back in the lineup against UL Monroe. Given the level of competition, there is no sense in rushing either back before the season finale.
