KJ Malone

KJ Malone on crutches before Saturday's game.

LSU practiced Monday again without left tackle KJ Malone.

The fifth-year senior missed another day of drills while recovering from a left knee injury he suffered in the game at Florida. Freshman Saahdiq Charles worked at starting left tackle. Charles has started the previous four games in Malone's place.

Coach Ed Orgeron has listed Malone's status as "questionable" in the past. Malone was spotted using crutches while on the sideline of the Tigers' game against Auburn on Oct. 14.

LSU (6-3, 3-2 Southeastern) hosts Arkansas (4-5, 1-4) at 11 a.m. Saturday. 

Other practice observations

  • Several players joined Malone as absent, including edge rusher Sci Martin, defensive end Deondre Clark, defensive back Xavier Lewis, F-back Bry'Kiethon Mouton, TE Caleb Roddy and WR Mannie Netherly. Mouton, Lewis, Netherly and Clark are reserves who have played sparingly. Roddy and Martin have not played this season. Martin returned to practice last week for the first time since August.
