That and more notes from the Tigers’ Week 2 depth chart revealed on Tuesday:
- Godchaux, who played much of the second half in Saturday’s 28-24 win over Wisconsin, is listed as the backup to starter Christian LaCouture. Clark, a highly rated prospect from Oklahoma, is the backup to defensive end Danielle Hunter. Clark saw playing time Saturday.
- Receiver Trey Quinn is now listed as a starter along side Travin Dural. Quinn played nearly every offensive snap on Saturday. He caught two passes, including a two-point conversion in the third quarter that pulled LSU to within three points.
- Hoko Fanaika and Evan Washington are listed as co-starters at the right guard position. Fanaika started and played the entire game at right guard Saturday. Washington replaced Jerald Hawkins at right tackle for one drive.
- Quarterbacks Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris are listed as co-starters, with the “OR” between their names on the depth chart.
- There is no longer an “OR” between the names of former co-starters Quentin Thomas and Frank Herron. Thomas is listed as the starter.
- Safety Jalen Mills is now listed as a starter with Rickey Jefferson as his backup. Mills started against Wisconsin. Jefferson had been listed as the starter.
- Jalen Collins is the starter at one cornerback position. Collins started Saturday for suspended corner Rashard Robinson.
- Freshman Leonard Fournette is listed as the starting kick returner. He started there against Wisconsin.
Things are becoming more clear as to why Wisconsin didn’t play quarterback Joel Stave and why its Heisman Trophy hopeful running back Melvin Gordon was limited in the second half of LSU’s 28-24 comeback win Saturday.
Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen, in a statement Tuesday, revealed that Stave has been dealing with a shoulder injury and is out indefinitely. On Monday, Andersen said Gordon suffered a hip injury late in the first half against LSU, a reason for his small amount of second-half carries. Gordon had just three carries in the second half. He had 12 carries for 76 yards in the first half.
LSU moved up one spot to No. 12 in the coaches poll released Tuesday. The Associated Press top 25 is set to be released at 1 p.m.
