The LSU football program took a big hit along the offensive line as the season approaches.
Earlier this week, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron said that starting guard Maea Teuhema was dealing with some “academic stuff” and on Wednesday the school announced that the junior has been suspended from the program indefinitely for a “violation of team rules.”
That’s a devastating blow to the Tigers offensive line, which loses starting experience and will now be down to redshirt freshman Lloyd Cushenberry and sophomore Donavaugh Campbell battling it out for the job.
According to The Advocate, LSU is now down to just 11 scholarship offensive linemen.
There’s no word on whether Teuhema will return to the team at any time during the 2017 season, but the suspension is not a promising sign.
LSU opens its 2017 campaign on Saturday, Sept. 2 against BYU.
