Starting left guard Ed Ingram will be available for LSU's game at Florida this week.
Ed Orgeron told WNXX-FM's "Off the Bench" Tuesday morning that Ingram is "ready to go," which means the Tigers (1-2) will get one of its best and most consistent linemen back for its biggest game yet against No. 10 Florida (2-1).
Ingram did not play in LSU's 45-41 loss at Missouri. The 6-foot-3, 315-pound junior entered the game "very questionable" to play because of an injury, Orgeron said, and he was replaced by redshirt freshman Charles Turner.
It was Turner's first career start. The 6-foot-5, 287-pound Ohio native began as a center for the Tigers, and, in 2019, he played a total of 36 snaps against Georgia Southern, Northwestern State and Vanderbilt.
Starting left tackle Dare Rosenthal returned against Missouri after missing the Vanderbilt game because of an injury. Sophomore Cam Wire started last week in place of Rosenthal, who returned to practice this week.
Orgeron also said Tuesday morning that All-American cornerback Derek Stingley isn't 100% healthy yet after he sprained his ankle in what Orgeron called a "freak accident" when Stingley stepped on the down marker coming off the field on Saturday.
Stingley is expected to practice this week and get better by the Florida game, Orgeron said.
Stingley's father, Derek Stingley Sr., told WNXX Tuesday morning that he expects his son to play "without a doubt" against Florida.
Stingley may take Monday's practice off, his father said, and try to return to practice on Tuesday.
