LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger should be ready to practice by the time LSU begins bowl preparations. At least that’s the word from Tiger coach Les Miles, who refused to state just exactly what Mettenberger’s injury is.
The senior LSU signal-caller hurt his knee in the fourth quarter of last weekend’s win over Arkansas. Mettenberger was on the sideline as backup Anthony Jennings — a freshman — led the Bayou Bengals on their game-winning 99-yard drive.
More than likely — if Miles believes Mettenberger will be ready to practice soon — the QB suffered a sprained knee. He was on crutches and wearing an ice pack at game’s end on Saturday. (Photo from The New Orleans Times-Picayune.)
Mettenberger led the SEC in quarterback rating this season, percentage points ahead of Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel.
