LSU football practice report (Oct. 23): Terrace Marshall was ‘ready to go’

4 weeks ago The Advocate 0

Terrace Marshall swung his arms, sang loudly, then caught a pass in LSU’s open session of practice Wednesday afternoon.

The LSU wide receiver seemed more than comfortable following Ed Orgeron’s morning announcement that Marshall will be “ready to go” for Saturday’s game against No. 9 Auburn.

How return of wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr. can improve LSU offense against Auburn

Terrace Marshall’s return against Auburn gives LSU another elite wide receiver, one of the keys to an offense on a record-setting pace. 

Marshall practiced without limitations on Wednesday, and the 6-foot-4, 200-pound sophomore practiced with a gold noncontact jersey on Tuesday.

“He ran through most drills that we had,” Orgeron said on the Southeastern Conference weekly teleconference. “So he’s going to be ready to go.”

Marshall, one of LSU’s three leading receivers, has missed three games since undergoing foot surgery on Sept. 22, and early on, Orgeron didn’t expect for Marshall to return until LSU’s game against Alabama on Nov. 9.

Defensive end Neil Farrell also practiced fully after wearing a gold noncontact jersey on Tuesday. The 6-foot-4, 298-pound junior is tied for the team lead with four sacks and has recorded four tackles for loss.

Redshirt freshman offensive tackle Dare Rosenthal and junior defensive end Justin Thomas were not seen during the open portion of practice. The two players have not been seen during the period the past three practices.
