The Week 6 Injury Report:

Despite Anderson likely out, another wide receiver that was listed on the injury report earlier this week was Kyren Lacy. With Lacy off of the Thursday update, all signs point towards him suiting up on Saturday at Missouri.

The third wideout who was listed on the injury report this week was Chris Hilton Jr. The vertical threat was injured on the final play of the Ole Miss game and it appears he will be out this week. Hilton was seen in a walking boot in the team facility this week.

LSU linebacker Omar Speights is also doubtful for this weekend against Missouri. It’s been a struggle to keep the Oregon State transfer on the field as he continues nursing a hip flexor injury. With Speights likely out this weekend, expect true freshman Whit Weeks to earn his third start of the season.
