LSU coach Ed Orgeron announced Friday that starting right guard Ed Ingram has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.
Ingram started the final 12 games as a freshman and had been listed as the starter on the depth chart as recently as Wednesday, according to The Times-Picayune.
Orgeron wouldn’t expand on what Ingram had done to run afoul of policy.
“It’s a violation of team policy,” Orgeron said. “We have a policy set in place by the university. He broke that policy. We just need to see what happens.”
Damien Lewis, a junior college transfer, was expected to back up both guard positions but will take over Ingram’s spot for the foreseeable future.
Said Orgeron of the roster shake-up: “It’s an unfortunate circumstance for any one of our teammates but we’re real excited about Damien.”
