Majority of LSU offensive linemen in quarantine, report says

A majoritiy of LSU's offensive lineman are in quarantine according to a report from the Advocate.

The newspaper reports that only four members of the group aren't in quarantine. Players can be quarantined after testing positive for COVID-19 or a high-risk exposure to someone who has. Under SEC guidlines players must quarantine anywhere between 10-14 days. 

LSU began fall camp last week as Tigers are preparing for their upcoming 10-game SEC schedule.

The Tigers are currently set to kick off the 2020 season with a matchup against Mississippi State in Tiger Stadium Sept 26.  The 10-game conference-only schedule will culminate with the SEC Championship Game December 19 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The decision to limit competition to Conference-only opponents and rescheduling the SEC Championship Game was made in response to the prevalence of the COVID-19 pandemic.
