Where was LB Whit Weeks in LSU’s win over Georgia State?

I have been seeing the question pop up a lot on my timeline recently, “Where in the world is Whit Weeks?”

The freshman from Watkinsville, Georgia, burst onto the scene this season against Mississippi State when he made eight tackles. That started a stretch of games for Weeks where he had 30 tackles in a four-game stretch (Mississippi State, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Missouri). Since then, we haven’t seen much out of the talented linebacker.

It’s not like the defense couldn’t use his productivity. Weeks has been one of the most consistent players on the team. When Omar Speights was out with an injury, Weeks stepped up in a big way. Brian Kelly was asked about where Weeks has been this month and his answer was that Weeks actually suffered an injury that required stitches.

That injury kept him out of the game against Georgia State last weekend. Kelly said Weeks will definitely be needed against Texas A&M this weekend.
