    I was worried about undisclosed injuries . . .

    Freshman wide receiver Malachi Dupre is not traveling with the team to Houston for LSU's opener against Wisconsin, multiple sources confirmed with the Geaux247 staff.

    The former five-star wide receiver has been battling a nagging hamstring injury that has kept him sidelined for a portion of fall camp earlier this month.

    Travin Dural, John Diarse and Trey Quinn will likely be the first three wide receivers to the field, with Quantavius Leslie and Avery Peterson also battling for reps at the position.

    The Daily Reveille has also reported that sophomore cornerback Rashard Robinsonhas not made the trip, and LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette told the paper that an update on Robinson's status would be provided by head coach Les Miles before the game.
    Losing Robinson really hurts.

    Agreed. I wanted to see Dupre but losing RR is painful.

    Multiple sources on Twitter stating RR suspended for the game, including Ross Dellenger from The Advocate.

    "Neither made the trip according to a report in the Daily Reveille posted just after 1 p.m. No reason was given, and LSU spokesman Michael Bonette said Tigers' coach Les Miles would not address who made or did not make the trip."

    If you believe Internet speculation, one's a lingering injury and the other is a failed drug test.
