LSU QB Brandon Harris to have surgery on hernia suffered

The LSU Tigers just finished off the 2015 season that saw a lot of ups and downs for them. They nearly lost head coach Les Miles who was on the hotseat after they lost three straight games in November.

One of the big reasons they may have had that rough patch was because of an injury to quarterback Brandon Harris. According to USA TODAY Sports, Harris suffered a minor sports hernia at some point in the season and he was scheduled to have surgery on the injury.

“It’s something minor, and I have to go get it taken care of now that the season is over,” Harris told the site. “It’s nothing serious, but I’ve had it for a long time. It’s been nagging at me for a while. So, this is the perfect time to take care of it. It’s a minor procedure.”

Harris didn’t reveal the specificity of the injury, but sources close to the team said that it was indeed a hernia. Harris went on to say that he had been dealing with it for a while and he would be “out about six to eight weeks for rehabilitation.”

Some sources have stated that he suffered the injury during the team’s 30-16 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide in early November. The injury must not have been that serious as Harris finished the last four games and threw for 932 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for 70 yards and a score in the Texas Bowl against Texas Tech.

Here’s to hoping that Harris makes a full recovery and is ready for spring practices in a few months.
