Now, the loss has apparently cost the Tigers a newly-minted defensive starter as well.
Citing a source, the New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting that linebacker Kwon Alexander suffered a broken ankle in the loss. As a result of the injury, the true freshman (pictured, No. 25) is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
The school has yet to confirm the injury or how long the player will or won’t miss.
Alexander, a four-star member of LSU’s 2012 recruiting class, had started the past two games for the Tigers.
