LSU defensive end Glen Logan (97) and LSU linebacker KÕLavon Chaisson (18) celebrate a penalty against Texas in the second half of the Tigers' 45-38 win over the Longhorns, Saturday, September 7, 2019, at Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Tx.

Starting left tackle Saahdiq Charles went with the third-team offensive line at LSU's football practice on Wednesday afternoon.

Charles did not play in the season opener because of a coach's decision, Ed Orgeron said. He started against Texas and played the entire game.

With Charles on the third team and right guard Damien Lewis out for the second-straight practice, LSU's first-team offensive line had freshman Dare Rosenthal at left tackle, senior Adrian Magee at left guard, junior Lloyd Cushenberry at center, senior Badara Traore at right guard and junior Austin Deculus at right tackle.

LSU had five starters absent during the open portion of practice, but the Tigers are being cautious with injuries ahead of Northwestern State. LSU is favored by 56 points.
