Report: LSU loses starting DT Thomas to season-ending injury

This isn’t the way a head coach wants the first week of summer camp to go.

While the school has yet to confirm it, the Baton Rouge Advocate is reporting that Quentin Thomas suffered a torn biceps recently.  As a result, the redshirt junior defensive tackle is expected to miss the entire 2014 season.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune subsequently confirmed the news.

The injury, which occurred during Wednesday’s practice, is expected to take at least six months to fully heal.

Thomas, a three-star recruit in 2011’s class, has played in 14 games the past two seasons, including 11 last season.  He has started one game in his career, which came in the Outback Bowl following the 2013 regular season.

Entering summer camp, he was listed as a starter on the Tigers’ depth chart.  The Times-Picayune writes that “[t]he likely replacement for Thomas will come from a group of redshirt freshmen Maquedius Bain, Greg Gilmore and Frank Herron.”

    Wow injury bug is running through camps. Some have been hit hard in the West. LSU and AU and even Alabama has several although most of them are expected back by the opener. Not sure about Texas AM. Georgia has had some injuries and transfers probably end up at AU especially if they broke the law..LOL, but it worked last year. How about Florida they have to be better than last year when they were decimated by injury. Not sure Tennessee has any starters returning to be injured. Well life in the SEC always fun never boring and we all think we will win except Vandy and even they did last year… What a conference. Just give me UA and OU in a playoff game so they can see how UA plays when they make up their mind to win. OU should know by now messing with SEC in a title game does not work out well for them. I wonder if they have better luck in a playoff, something tells me know. Besides they may have to play two SEC teams to win the title not a chance…
