BATON ROUGE, La (NBC33) — LSU Head Coach Les Miles says the Tiger turmoil did not affect practice today; he’s also glad to welcome back a big shot on the field.
Russell Shepard will be in this weekend's game. The wide receiver was suspended for interfering with an NCAA investigation, and had to sit out the first three games.
“I'll enjoy Russell being back,” stated Miles. “He's got a lot of energy and he enjoys playing, so I like the position we are in."
While Miles was a man of few words at his weekly press conference, NBC333 asked his take on the court proceedings involving two LSU players.
"I'd kind of like to see how this thing finishes... quickly," said Miles.
While grand jury testimony continues, LSU players could be in the spotlight once again. However, Miles says he is staying focused and gearing up to take the Tigers to West Virginia this weekend.
