BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLA) — LSU Senior Linebacker Michael Divinity is no longer part of the Tiger program according to multiple reports from national outlets.

The news from Sports Illustrated and the Athletic say Divinity’s name plate has already been removed from his locker in the LSU facility.

The news means the Tigers will be missing the team’s sack leader for Saturday’s trip to Tuscaloosa for a game against the No. 2 Alabama Crimson Tide.

Divinity missed the first two games of the season for what LSU called a “coach’s decision”, he returned against Vanderbilt but was injured in the game and missed the following game against Utah State.

The John Ehret graduate returned when LSU hosted Florida and has played since. He recorded sacks in LSU’s win over Auburn and Mississippi State.

LSU travels to Bryant-Denny Stadium to face #2 Alabama Saturday, Nov. 9 at 2:30pm.
