After limited playing time in the first four games of the 2019 season, the LSU Tigers will be without one of their running backs this Saturday when they take on Utah State
As first reported by Eddie Aschoff, Lanard Fournette is no longer with the program. Fournette, who graduated from LSU in May, accrued 36 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries through four games.
LSU now has four scholarship running backs remaining on the roster. Clyde Edwards-Helaire currently leads the team with 51 carries for 288 yards and five touchdowns, and sophomore Chris Curry has 37 carries for 33 yards.
True freshmen John Emery (18 carries, 69 yards, and two touchdowns) and Tyrion Davis-Price (17 carries, 59 yards and two touchdowns) both arrived in the summer and have begun to receive more playing time in the last few weeks.
The Tigers will return to action this Saturday when they take on Utah State with kickoff slated for 11 am.
