LSU Injuries: Positive updates for Armoni Goodwin, Major Burns – LSU Wire

  • October 15, 2022

LSU’s rushing attack took a hit when Armoni Goodwin left the New Mexico game with a hamstring injury.
It turned out to be pretty serious, with Goodwin now in the midst of a multi-game absence. According to Brian Kelly, he could be returning soon. LSU will remain without Goodwin against Florida, but he could return against Ole Miss.
If he’s still not cleared next week, then he’ll have a bye week before needing to be cleared against Alabama.
Among RBs with at least 30 carries, Goodwin ranks second in the SEC on yards after contact per run. Among the same group, Goodwin’s breakaway percentage ranked second as well, according to PFF.
There’s a chance #LSU running back Armoni Goodwin could get cleared to play vs. Ole Miss, Brian Kelly said.
Major Burns has been playing on scout team as he recovers. He’s on track to return around the Alabama game.

On defense, LSU will have to wait a few more weeks before Major Burns returns. Kelly said Burns should be back for the Alabama contest.
LSU’s secondary struggled against Tennessee, and Burns is one of LSU’s best communicators on the back end.
