The LSU Tigers have so few players available because of injuries that they will be unable to hold a full football practice Wednesday, coach Ed Orgeron told reporters during a conference call.
Orgeron added that a previously scheduled scrimmage on Thursday won’t be able to take place either.
Two weeks ago, LSU and Orgeron agreed to part ways at the end of the season.
Orgeron, who will receive all of the $16.9 million left on his contract, said he wanted to “finish out” the job rather than walk away before the season was over.
But much of the team Orgeron thought he’d have this season has been sidelined by injuries.
Kayshon Boutte, who at one point was tied for the most receiving touchdowns in the FBS, was lost with a season-ending injury as well.
John Emery, who was projected to share starting duties at running back, was sidelined because of eligibility concerns and is not expected to play this season, either.
LSU has four regular-season games remaining.
Orgeron has said that he would stay on to coach the bowl game, should LSU earn the opportunity and accept the invitation.
