LSU loses TE Jamal Pettigrew to torn ACL
LSU lost a big piece to their 2018 offense this week when news came down that tight end Jamal Pettigrew tore his ACL in a non-contact workout.
According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Pettigrew has already undergone surgery and he will spend the 2018 season rehabbing the injury.
The 6-7, 262-pound Pettigrew played in 13 games this past season after redshirting as a true freshman the year before. In 2017, he caught one pass for 18 yards.
Pettigrew was a four-star 2016 signee who was rated as the No. 9 tight end in the country. He is the cousin of former Detroit Lion TE Brandon Pettigrew, who recently found himself in some hot water.
The Tigers coaching staff has not publicly commented on the injury, but they do have some depth to cover the injury.
Senior Foster Moreau figures to see the bulk of the time as the team’s starting tight end, he has 30 receptions for 357 yards and four touchdowns in his career–with most of them (24-278-3) coming last season.
In addition to Moreau, Thaddeus Moss, son of Hall-of-Famer Randy Moss is next in line for playing time. He sat out last season after transferring from North Carolina State.
Whoever lines up for the Tigers, they will need to be ready as they take on the Miami Hurricanes in their first game on Sept.2nd at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/lsu-loses-te-jamal-pettigrew-to-torn-acl/https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/lsu-practices-jamal-pettigrew-lsus-fall-camp-f7760cbd47a3b5b7.jpg?fit=600%2C454&ssl=1https://i0.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/lsu-practices-jamal-pettigrew-lsus-fall-camp-f7760cbd47a3b5b7.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NCAAFRecent PostsSECBrandon Pettigrew,College Football,Foster Moreau,Jamal Pettigrew,jamal pettigrew torn acl,LSU Tigers,SEC,Thaddeus MossLSU lost a big piece to their 2018 offense this week when news came down that tight end Jamal Pettigrew tore his ACL in a non-contact workout.
