LSU coach Ed Orgeron says All-America cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. is expected to play this week at Vanderbilt.
Stingley also returns punts and is considered among the top players in all of college football.
He missed LSU’s season opening 44-34 loss to Mississippi State last Saturday after being hospitalized with a sudden and acute illness.
LSU officials have not provided specifics about Stingley’s diagnosis but have stressed that his illness was not COVID-19.
Orgeron says LSU “obviously” missed Stingley as Bulldogs quarterback J.K. Costello passed for an SEC record 632 yards.
