LSU is four days away from its season opener against Georgia Southern, and the Tigers held their first full-pads practice of the regular season outdoors on Tuesday afternoon.
True freshman safety Marcel Brooks. a former five-star recruit, missed practice Tuesday, a day after he participated in the light, shorts-and-jerseys practice on Monday.
The 6-foot-2, 194-pound Texas native, whom Orgeron has said can be used much like unanimous All-American safety Grant Delpit, missed the last two open practices of preseason camp.
Two other LSU defensive backs were missing: junior Mannie Netherly, who announced Monday that he entered the transfer portal, and true freshman Jay Ward.
The 6-foot-2, 167-pound Ward has earned praise from Orgeron for his strength and tackling.
Senior linebacker Michael Divinity returned to practicing with the inside linebackers, after he spent Monday working through drills with the outside linebackers.
