Myles Brennan “doesn’t look like he’s going to be back” according to LSU coach Ed Orgeron

LSU starting quarterback Myles Brennan will likely not return to the defending national champions in 2020 according to head coach Ed Orgeron.

”We haven’t made a final decision but it doesn’t look like he’ll be back unless something miraculous happens” said head coach Ed Orgeron at his weekly press conference today.

“What’s best for Myles, the doctors and them are talking to right now see what’s the best for Myles. We’re going to do what’s the best for him, whether it’s getting it fixed, getting it operated now or wait. I think we’re still discussing that,” said Orgeron.

The injury is a combination of abdominal/hip injury that has limited Brennan to only three games for LSU this season. He is 79-131 for 1,112 yards and 11 touchdowns with three interceptions in 2020, and the junior will have at least two more seasons of eligibility at the conclusion of this year.

LSU was scheduled to play Alabama this weekend, but that game was canceled due to a Covid-19 outbreak in Baton Rouge.
