Hurst did not show up to LSU's game against South Carolina on Saturday, and Miles has not specified why. Since last week, members of the media have speculated that Hurst left the team for personal reasons.
Hurst's departure is yet another blow to the LSU offensive line that has already lost left tackle Chris Faulk for the season with a knee injury. In addition, right guard Josh Williford is struggling with a head injury.
LSU has another challenging opponent this week as the Tigers head to No. 20 Texas A&M. The Aggies have managed 20 sacks in their first six games.
