BATON ROUGE, La. (WVLT) - With LSU already reeling from the loss of its national title hopes and questioning the status of head coach Les Miles, who will meet with Michigan next week about its coaching vacancy, the Tigers are coping with another setback leading up to Saturday's SEC championship tilt with Tennessee:
Quarterback Matt Flynn is nursing a separated shoulder and, at the very least, may be limited Saturday versus the Vols, according to ESPN.com's Chris Low. If he cannot play, sophomore Ryan Perrilloux will take the snaps. Perrilloux has played in all but two of LSU's games this season, often serving in a Tim Tebow-like capacity -- that is, coming off the bench for occassional run plays. He has thrown seven touchdowns this season and run for two.
Flynn aggravated the shoulder injury in last week's 50-48 triple-overtime loss to Arkansas. He practiced Wednesday for this first time this week, but was limited.
