LSU coaches made changes to the team's kickoff coverage during the off week, and coach Ed Orgeron revealed injuries that quarterback Danny Etling is battling.
Ole Miss averaged 32 yards a kick return in LSU's 40-24 win over, something that precipitated coaches from making "a couple" of personnel changes to the kickoff coverage unit, Orgeron said during his weekly radio show Wednesday.
Adjustments were also made to the placement of kickoffs from Cameron Gamble. "The (kickoffs) weren't where they were supposed to be," Orgeron said.
Meanwhile, Etling is ailing in several spots. The senior has "very" sore ribs and a sore ankle, the coach said. Etling is often spotted after games limping, clearly battling some issues.

Other notes from Orgeron's radio show.
- Center Will Clapp is the "passing game coordinator" for the Tiger Bowl on Thursday. Orgeron joked, "Don't know how that happened." The Tigers Bowl is a bye week tradition Orgeron began last season. Young players, walk-ons and reserves play one another in a scrimmage coached by the veterans.
- Freshman safety Grant Delpit played his best game "by far," Orgeron said. Delpit had an interception against the Rebels.
