Florida stops LSU running back Derrius Guice short of the goal line

LSU coach Ed Orgeron said that the star running back is "very questionable" for Saturday's matchup against Syracuse, making the statement on the weekly SEC coaches' teleconference.

Guice exited Saturday's 37-7 loss to Mississippi State with what Oregeron told reporters earlier in the week was a "minor injury".

Although Guice will start against Syracuse, Orgeron said he would be restricted to a "limited role".

No. 25 LSU (2-1) has consecutive non-conference games (it plays Troy next week) before getting back into SEC play. He now rushed for 300 yards and 4 touchdowns. "It's great news for us".

A weaker dollar was supporting prices slightly Tuesday by making gold , a dollar-denominated metal, cheaper for foreign buyers. The broader all-share index also gained 50 points, or 1 percent, to settle at 4,886.48, on a value turnover of P8.1 billion.

His injury status has shifted all week. That changed Thursday morning, though Orgeron still needed convincing evidence in practice that Guice was ready to play.

Guice is the main piece to the Tigers offense, due to their limitations in the passing game many expect the junior to be in the running for the Heisman at the end of the year.

The situation somewhat mirrors last season's Florida game in which Tigers running back Leonard Fournette was ruled out but ended up playing against the Gators.

In this case, Guice has enough to time be fully prepared. How will Guice perform this weekend? He has averaged a career-low 5.3 yards per carry through three games and has 300 yards and four touchdowns.
