LSU QB Brennan likely out for season Staff

LSU quarterback Myles Brennan likely is finished for the season as he continues to recover from an injury to his abdomen and hip, coach Ed Oregron said Wednesday.

“It doesn’t look like he’s going to be back, unless some miraculous thing happens,” Orgeron said.

He added Brennan could require surgery for the injury, which occurred Oct. 10 in a 45-41 loss to Missouri.

It’s the latest setback for the Tigers, who won the College Football Playoff last season behind Heisman Trophy-winner Joe Burrow.

Undefeated in 2019, LSU is 2-3. Saturday’s game against No. 1 Alabama was postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak within the Tigers program.

The Tigers are scheduled to play at Arkansas on Nov. 18. Orgeron will turn to either TJ Finley or Max Johnson, both freshmen, at quarterback.

Brennan, a junior, played in the first three games of the season. He completed 79 of 131 passes for 1,112 yards and 11 touchdowns with three interceptions.

Brennan tweeted Wednesday that he will keep working to return.

“Just have to keep fighting,” he wrote. “Looking forward to being back out there with my guys.”
