Coach Billy Napier announces senior left guard, Ken Marks and junior tight end, Johnny Lumpkin will be out the remainder of the season. Both players will be eligible for a 6th year, meaning Lumpkin is expected for two more seasons and Marks for one.

At the beginning of the season the Cajuns had five seniors on the offensive line. Now due to injuries they are down to three. The latest injury, being Marks, occurred last weekend in their season opener against Mississippi State.

Napier gave praise to sophomore, Max Mitchell who stepped in against Mississippi State in the left guard position. He also brought attention to the Freshman, O’Cyrus Torrence who stepped into the guard position and made a noticeable impact for the Cajun offense.

“I would say O'Cyrus Torrence, he's the guy and certainly Spencer is very valuable player,” coach Billy Napier said. “This is a position where we got depth. We've worked hard to get some of these young players ready. I think we signed some really good players. So, we're in good shape, certainly a couple of injuries but because of the depth that we have we're going to survive it.”

The Cajuns newly released depth chart lists Torrence as the starting guard against Liberty on Saturday, Sept. 7th.
