One of LSU's two starting tackles practiced Monday. 

Right tackle Toby Weathersby returned to practice, a positive sign for his potential return, but left tackle KJ Malone did not participate in drills.

Weathersby missed the win over Auburn last week after suffering an undisclosed injury in the victory at Florida. His status for this week's game at Ole Miss remains in question. 

Malone's injury (left knee) seems more serious, and coach Ed Orgeron called him "questionable for a questionable amount of time." He is not scheduled to practice this week, the coach said. 

Freshman Saahdiq Charles replaced Malone, a senior, at left tackle against Auburn, while redshirt sophomore Adrian Magee played in place of Weathersby, a junior. 

Other observations

  • Safety Xavier Lewis and F-back Bry'Kiethon Mouton returned to practice after missing the last two weeks of drills for undisclosed reasons. Mouton has not traveled to a game this season and has played sparingly. Lewis was in the rotation at nickelback before two weeks ago.
  • Safety Grant Delpit and DE Neil Farrell were not at practice. Both players did not appear to suffer an injury in last week's game.
  • Safety John Battle practiced, as he did for most of last week. Battle, however, did not play in the game against Auburn, replaced by redshirt freshman Eric Monroe. Battle suffered a stinger at Florida, according to the LSU radio broadcast.
