LSU football’s week got a little worse on Wednesday.

LSU football‘s 1-2 start to the 2020 season certainly isn’t ideal.

You know what else isn’t ideal?

Possibly going into the Swamp to take on the Florida Gators as a 1-2 team without your starting quarterback.

That’s the situation that LSU could possibly be in this weekend.

No Myles Brennan for LSU football?

Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron announced on Wednesday, during an appearance on the SEC weekly coaches teleconference, that quarterback Myles Brennan is considered doubtful for this weekend’s matchup against the Gators.

Orgeron said Brennan, who suffered the injury on a goal line play against Missouri, didn’t practice on Tuesday and it’s unclear if he will be ready to go this weekend (via Brooks Kubena).

If Brennan can’t play, it would mean a true freshman — either TJ Finely or Max Johnson — would likely get the start. The reps between the two true freshmen are being split 50/50.

A true freshman starting in Gainesville is definitely not the best way to avoid a two-game losing streak.

It’s possible, however, that the game isn’t played this weekend.

Florida had to pause football activities this week due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

Coach O told reporters on Wednesday that he doesn’t think the game will be played.

“I really think the safety of the kids this week is the priority,” said Orgeron.

(Orgeron acknowledged that he hasn’t heard anything official from the SEC or LSU athletic director Scott Woodward.)

Bo Pelini has a major flaw to fix. dark. Next

It would obviously be unfortunate to see the game canceled this weekend. But thanks to the injury to Brennan, it could end up being the best thing that happens for the Tigers.
