LSU coach Ed Orgeron reveals most of players already 'have caught' COVID-19

The LSU football team got an early start on catching COVID-19 with as many 30 players quarantined in June because of the virus.

And now, the team may be reaping the benefits of that initial spike as most of the roster has already had it, Tigers coach Ed Orgeron said on a teleconference Tuesday.

"I think most - not all of our players - but most of our players have caught it," Orgeron said. "So, I think hopefully they don't catch it again and hopefully they're not out for games."

A report last month said all but four LSU offensive lineman either tested positive or were in quarantine due to concerns about the coronavirus.
