LSU Morning Briefing

LSU will hold its first full squad practice and will be in full pads for the first time this fall camp on Friday. The Tigers will hold just one practice Friday, starting at about 9 a.m. Here’s what we’re watching:

- Collisions: LSU’s first full pad practice should include a lot of those. The emphasis on Day 1 of full pads will be on tempo and physicality, coach Les Miles said Thursday. The Tigers will likely participate in the Big Cat drill, where a defensive and offensive player is pitted against one another. The goal is to drive your opponent back.

- Full squad: For the first time this fall camp, LSU’s entire team will practice at one time. This might give reporters a better view of how personnel stacks up. For the first time this fall, we’ll see quarterbacks Brandon Harris and Anthony Jennings practice together. LSU had split-squad practices the first four days of fall camp. Mainly starters and veterans went through drills in the morning with freshmen and reserves going in the afternoon. The quarterbacks rotated between practicing in the morning and afternoon.

- Offense installation: Offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has slowly been installing the LSU offense with quarterback Brandon Harris, specifically the run-and-pass option. Cameron implemented multiple plays where Harris has an option to hand off to the running back, keep it and run himself or, even, pass it laterally.
