LSU’s Turner and Johnson will play against Georgia

LSU head coach Les Miles said on Monday that right guard Trai Turner and defensive tackle Anthony Johnson are both going to be healthy enough to play against Georgia on Saturday.

Turner (right ankle) and Johnson (left leg) each had to leave the game due to injuries suffered in the Tigers’ win over Auburn this past Saturday. Both injuries were at first thought to be serious.

But Miles said LSU trainers determined that Turner’s injury was just a contusion while Johnson’s was a bruise. Both will start against the Bulldogs.

Turner is a sophomore who has started all of LSU’s games this season and seven as a 2012 freshman. He’s one of the keys to the Tigers running attack. Johnson is a junior with 13 tackles and 2.5 tackles for loss so far. Along with Ego Ferguson, he’s projected to be a future first round pick.

    This is good news. I am looking forward to seeing the Cameron offense continue to unfold, and the Chavis defense continue to gel and the rookies to learn to remain in their lanes, and Met and Hill and the gang, running over the red and black dawgs. Mike VI will take a big bite out of Uga as he did Aubie.

    I will be there, just got tickets! A few purple and gold will in the midst of a sea of red.

    Geaux Tigers!
