(AP) LSU coach Ed Orgeron says the defending national champion Tigers have had ''very few'' players test positive for COVID-19.
Orgeron said during a video conference Tuesday that the team had ''two or three guys that are out'' because of positive tests. He did not specify which players had tested positive.
Orgeron says LSU administrators overseeing coronavirus protocols, led by Senior Associate Athletic Director of Health and Wellness Shelly Mullenix, have done a ''tremendous job.
''We're ahead (of) most programs,'' Orgeron said. ''Our players feel comfortable that they're getting proper care.''
August camp formally opened on Monday and LSU has had two players opt out because of coronavirus concerns, senior cornerback Kary Vincent Jr. and senior defensive end Neil Farrell Jr.
