LSU running back John Emery Jr. is expected to miss the remainder of the season for academic reasons, coach Ed Orgeron said Monday.
Emery, a junior, was expected to compete to be the Tigers’ starting running back this season, but has been ruled academically ineligible.
“Right now, he’s unavailable,” Orgeron said, stopping short of saying Emery would definitely miss the entire season. “Things could change. If they do change, we’ll play him … but that’s out of my control.”
