LSU's Jeremy Hill with 'good chance' to play Saturday vs. UAB
Jeremy Hill's suspension will reportedly only last a game, with the tailback set to play in LSU's home opener vs. UAB.
CBSSports.com's Bruce Feldman reported Friday that Hill "won't start but has a good chance of playing" in LSU's home opener Saturday against UAB, per a source. Hill traveled with the Tigers and dressed for their Week 1 win over TCU, but did not see the field.
Hill will likely back up starter Alfred Blue and second-string Terrence Magee, who combined for 184 yards and 2 touchdowns in the 10-point win over the Horned Frogs.
The Baton Rouge Advocate also reported Friday that Hill would play, citing a "source familiar with the situation."
Hill's status has been the topic of heated speculation for months. A judge's ruling in early August that Hill had not violated the terms of his previous probation kept Hill out of jail, paving the way for his reinstatement to the team after a team vote. Les Miles has been evasive in describing Hill's punishment for the arrest, only saying it would be "internal."
A sophomore, Hill was LSU's leading rusher as a freshman in 2012 with 755 yards and 12 touchdowns.
The Tigers are 34.5-point favorites over the 0-1 Blazers.
