BATON ROUGE, LA (WTVQ) – LSU defense attorney Derek Stingley Jr. has been indefinitely excluded after undergoing medical procedures on his injured foot, the school said Wednesday. He won’t play against the 16th and undefeated Kentucky (5-0) at Kroger Field on Saturday. The Kentucky-LSU game is sold out, the second in a row for the Wildcats.
He was expelled prior to the September 25 game in Mississippi State with the injury he initially sustained in training. The injury didn’t improve, so Stingley opted for the procedure, according to LSU.
The junior cornerback has made 74 tackles, six for a loss, 26 defended passes and six interceptions in his LSU career. He started as a freshman to the 2019 Tigers national championship team and received All America honors.
Stingley is predicted by most draft pundits to go very high in the 2022 NFL draft.
