Orgeron: LSU starting quarterback Myles Brennan out for remainder of 2020 season

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron said starting quarterback Myles Brennan is out for the remainder of the 2020 season barring a “miraculous” recovery.

Orgeron made the comments during a Southeastern Conference (SEC) coach’s call Wednesday, Nov. 11. He said Brennan is suffering from injuries to both his abdomen and hip. A decision has not yet been made if Brennan will have surgery to help him with the injuries, Orgeron said.

Brennan suffered the injuries in the first quarter against Missouri on Oct. 10. Orgeron admitted previously that he knew when Brennan took the hit that his quarterback was “pretty bruised and banged up.” He added Brennan could still rotate his lower body and throw the football, despite the injury.

Brennan is the first player in LSU history to throw for 300 yards or more in his first three career starts. He has 1,112 passing yards, 79 completions, and 11 touchdown passes this season. They are all the most of any LSU quarterback in his first three career starts. He threw for 345 yards against Mississippi State, 337 yards at Vanderbilt, and 430 yards vs. Missouri.
