LSU’s Derrius Guice reportedly will play against Syracuse after previously being ruled out

first_imgGuice had not practiced Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday due to a “minor injury,” according to Nola.com. The junior had 15 carries for 76 yards in LSU’s loss last week against Mississippi State before missing the last quarter and a half.“He’s a very, very talented back,” SU head coach Dino Babers said Monday. “I think he’s different from the starter last year (Leonard Fournette). I think he’s more complete. I think he can catch passes, I think he can run, and he’s tough between the tackles. He’s one of those guys that gets six, eight, 10, then he goes for 20, then he goes for 40. He’s going to be very difficult to stop.”The backup running back, senior Darrel Williams, has 28 carries for 159 yards and four rushing touchdowns this season.
