LSU starting defensive end Andre Anthony will miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury sustained in Saturday’s win against Central Michigan.
A sixth-year senior, Anthony was a leader on defense. He ends his season with eight tackles and 3.5 sacks.
“Let me say this about Andre Anthony, what an outstanding Tiger, an outstanding leader,” coach Ed Orgeron said Monday. “Andre has been with me since the beginning here. Absolutely love him. .. It is sad news, it really is, because he was having a good season.”
Anthony led the team with 5.5 sacks in 2020.
In the 49-21 win over Central Michigan, Anthony recovered a fumble and ran it back 33 yards for a score in the first quarter.
In 35 career games, he has 55 tackles and 10.5 sacks.
“Thank you to everyone who has reached out, I really appreciate all the love and support,” Anthony, 24, tweeted. “Please keep me in your prayers.”
Thank you to everyone who has reached out, I really appreciate all the love and support. Please keep me in your prayers. It’s in Gods hands, praying and hoping for the best ????
