LSU will be without Chris Faulk this week.
LSU left tackle Chris Faulk will not play in the Tigers' game against the Washington Huskies on Saturday after suffering an injury during practice this week. Faulk, a junior, started 13 games for LSU in 2011.
LSU head coach Les Miles said Wednesday that he wasn't sure about the extent of Faulk's injury, or how long the starter might be absent. "It looks like Faulk's got a bit of an injury. We don't know exactly how bad, but we hope to return him to the game some time soon. Don't know the specifics there," Miles remarked.
He added that senior Josh Dworaczyk would most likely be the guy to replace Faulk at left tackle. Dworaczyk can handle every position on the offensive line, according to Miles. He was the team's starter at left guard in 2009 and 2010.
