LSU running back Derrius Guice (5) jokes around on the field before kickoff against Troy, Saturday, September 30, 2017, on LSU's campus in Baton Rouge, La.

Three of four LSU starters absent from last week's loss to Troy participated in the Tigers' first full-padded practice of the week Tuesday.

Running back Derrius Guice, defensive end Rashard Lawrence and F-back JD Moore worked out with the team, while right tackle Toby Weathersby did not. 

Weathersby participated in Monday's pad-less walk-through practice, but he was not present Tuesday during the brief observation window that reporters are allowed. He's sustained an undisclosed injury against Syracuse, it is believed, and did not practice last week or play in the 24-21 loss to the Trojans. 

Guice (believed to be left knee), Moore (undisclosed) and Lawrence (ankle) worked out in full gear, with Moore the only of the trio in a gold jersey, signifying limited contact because of injury. The trio missed last week's game. Lawrence said Tuesday that he is playing in the game at Florida on Saturday.
