The left-footed punter will miss the Tigers' Dec. 31 Chick-fil-A Bowl game against Clemson, according to a report.
LSU punter Brad Wing will not play against Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 after being suspended, according to a report from Jim Kleinpeter of The Times-Picayune. The suspension's for a failed drug test, according to Tiger Rag, which also reports Wing could now leave early for the NFL. If so, let's treasure this moment forever:
Tigers head coach Les Miles has been unavailable for comment so far.
Wing emerged as a force for LSU's special teams unit in 2011 as a redshirt freshman, averaging 44.4 yards per punt and having 27 of his 57 punts downed inside of the 20-yard line.
