Star LSU running back Leornard Fournette tweeted a picture of himself Friday without his familiar braces. "They gone," Fournette says in the tweet, accompanied by a smiling selfie.

Fournette said during the bye week before facing Alabama that he had missed several appointments to have his braces removed and thought the bye week would be a good time to have them taken off.
Alas, the bye week came and went, and the braces stayed. Until now.
