Late Friday night, LSU Tigers fans were horrified when a starting player was hospitalized.
Tigerdroppings initially reported that offensive lineman Will Campbell would not play on Saturday. It was unclear exactly what was going on with the freshman star.
However, he later posted a picture on his Instagram story from the hospital bed. “Appreciate all the prayers, I’ll be back,” Campbell said in the post.
The post was screen-shot and then shared on Twitter by several different journalists.
“There’s not a perfect IG story from your opening left tackle 12 hours before kickoff against a top 10 team,” ESPN Baton Rouge reporter Matt Moscona said this morning.
Campbell, a former four-star recruit and No. 4 offensive tackle in the 2022 class, has started all 5 games for the Tigers with a left tackle so far this season.
He might not be playing today, but hopefully he will make a full recovery in the near future.
LSU and Tennessee are scheduled to begin at 12:00 p.m. at Tiger Stadium. ET. The game will air on ESPN.
