LSU's Derrius Guice 'very questionable' for Syracuse game

LSU Tigers running back Derrius Guice is "very questionable" to play Saturday when the Tigers meet Syracuse, coach Ed Orgeron said Wednesday.

Guice, the SEC's leading rusher in 2016, left the Tigers' 37-7 loss to Mississippi State on Saturday with what Orgeron told local reporters earlier this week was a "minor injury," but on Wednesday's SEC coaches teleconference, Orgeron indicated Guice's status was uncertain.

Orgeron called Guice's status "very questionable," and indicated that the running back did not practice on Tuesday. Orgeron did not disclose the nature of Guice's injury.

Guice is the conference's fifth-leading rusher, with 300 yards and four touchdowns in three games for the Tigers (2-1).
