Nothing is going right for the LSU Tigers this season. Already at the bottom of the SEC West standings, they received another massive blow on Wednesday.

Head coach Ed Orgeron announced that starting cornerback Eli Ricks is out for the season.

The sophomore DB has been dealing with a recurring injury that he hasn't been able to shake, and he'll likely be undergoing surgery.

Ricks has played 14 games for LSU over the last two seasons, racking up a combined 5 interceptions, 6 pass defenses and 31 tackles while also scoring 2 defensive touchdowns.

LSU is a big underdog in Week 7 on FanDuel Sportsbook, with Florida favored by 10.5 points in Baton Rouge.
