LSU wide receiver Kayshon Boutte (1) runs for a first down after making the catch as Auburn safety Zion Puckett (10) gives chase during the first half at Tiger Stadium on Saturday Oct. 2, 2021.

Sophomore wide receiver Kayshon Boutte wasn't present during the open portion of LSU's practice Tuesday afternoon as the team prepared for No. 16 Kentucky this weekend.

With the weather clear, LSU held a 15-minute viewing session for the first time in two weeks. Players sometimes come to practice later for a variety of reasons.

Boutte is LSU's leading receiver and tied for the most touchdown catches in the country this season with nine. Wide receiver Trey Palmer, who briefly left LSU's loss to Auburn after getting tackled on a kickoff, also didn't practice.

Safety Major Burns and nose tackle Joseph Evans were not present. Burns has started every game, making 25 tackles with one interception. Evans has four starts.

While they didn't participate in the open period, sophomore wide receiver Koy Moore practiced after missing LSU's game against Auburn, and backup safety Todd Harris Jr. went through drills in a gold, non-contact jersey after missing the last two games.
