However, because Alabama didn’t run a play in his absence, Jones had to run a 3rd-and-28 play, and pitched it to Damien Harris on a simple option for a loss.It isn’t the first time that Tua has had to leave a game. He’s been nursing a knee issue, which cause him to leave the game against Missouri.With Hurts on the team, he hasn’t had to play in any garbage time, and is yet to throw a pass in the fourth quarter, but this LSU game is not the time to have both star quarterbacks out.Luckily, it seems like he’s okay to go, but either way, its a good start for the LSU defense.last_img
