AUBURN, Ala. — LSU backup fullback Bry’Kiethon Mouton did not make the trip to Auburn with the rest of the team after suffering an injury in practice, multiple sources confirmed to The Advocate.
Mouton, a sophomore, sees playing time sparingly behind starter J.D. Moore. The Tigers use him as a short-yardage back. Against Jacksonville State, Mouton carried four times for 15 yards and scored a touchdown.
The extent of his injury is not clear, though it's not considered too serious, one source confirmed.
Mouton did not play last week in the win over Mississippi State according to a participation chart released by the school. He took over for an injured Moore last season, starting five of the last seven games and serving as the lead blocker for running back Leonard Fournette.
Sophomore lineman Toby Weathersby did not travel to Auburn with the rest of the LSU football…
Sophomore David Ducre, the top-ranked fullback in the nation in the 2015 signing class, is LSU’s third string fullback. He saw limited time late last year after coaches burned his redshirt following Moore’s season-ending knee injury against Alabama.
Mouton is, at least, the second unexpected player to not make the trip to Auburn, joining starting right tackle Toby Weathersby. Weathersby sprained his ankle last week against Mississippi State.
