LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Redshirt freshman running back Marcus Wiltz will miss the remainder of the 2010 season with a knee injury.

Wiltz was the team's leading rusher through five games this season with 317 yards on 74 carries.

Offensive tackle Taylor Johnson and linebacker Hayden Dobbs will also miss the rest of the season, and both will attempt to get medical redshirts for the year.

Other McNeese starters questionable for Saturday's game against LSU are quarterback Jacob Bower and defensive tackle Desmund Lighten.

The Pokes kick-off against the Tigers at 6:00 in Tiger Stadium.
