The LSU Tigers had to take measures on Monday when they suspended defensive end Davon Godchaux after he was arrested on charges of domestic abuse and child endangerment. While his charges had been dropped Tuesday night, it had not been confirmed if he would be able to play this weekend against Missouri.
However, that changed early Wednesday morning when Ross Dellenger of The Advocate reported that Godchaux’s short suspension had been lifted. Interim head coach Ed Orgeron, who is also Godchaux’s defensive line coach, confirmed the news.

This is big news for LSU as they will need all the firepower they can get against the Missouri offensive line. The team has been without senior defensive tackle Christian LaCouture, who tore his ACL in training camp, all year and could not afford to be down another defensive lineman.
So far on the year, Godchaux has recorded two tackles for loss and two sacks while recovering two fumbles for the team as well. He should be able to make a huge impact for the team going forward.
LSU and Missouri meet up in Baton Rouge on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EDT with the game airing on SEC Network.
