Details emerge on injuries suffered in LSU fight

LSU is currently without its starting quarterback Jordan Jefferson and linebacker Josh Johns as the two have been suspended indefinitely after being arrested for their role in a fight outside a bar in Baton Rouge. According to witness reports, Jordan Jefferson allegedly kicked a man in the face during the fight, and now a report on ESPN details the injuries suffered by two of the men involved in the fracas.

Andrew Lowery is the man who was allegedly kicked in the face by Jefferson, and he suffered a facial fracture, a concussion, fractured teeth and facial and body bruises in the fight. According to the general manager of the bar where the fight took place, John Peak, Lowery also threw the first punch and had been kicked out of the bar earlier.

Lowery claims that he was merely trying to help an unknown man who was being pulled from his truck by the LSU football players. The man who was pulled from the truck suffered three fractured vertabrae in his lower back, a concussion, fractured teeth and severe cuts and bruises on his face.

What actually happened that night outside Shady's Bar we don't know yet, and it's up to the local police to piece the story together. Still, given the injuries suffered by Lowery and the man in the truck and witness reports, things aren't looking good for Jordan Jefferson at the moment. Regardless of whether or not he started the fight or was merely defending himself.

That is one side of the story, then next, Jefferson wasn't even involved.  Somehow the statements made by Jefferson's attorney, the bar manager, and the bar employees that place Jefferson as a observer of this fight doesn't make it on this article.  I expect Tom Fornelli to balance his posted article as time goes on.... or not.

Simply require NCAA student athletes to have a brain...that solves everything. Massive academic and cerebral' standards' reform is the answer. And,if that happened, don't fret about the great , but dumb, athletes that would miss out on pro FB opportunities by being denied college FB scholarships...the NFL would have a full fledged minor league system and expanded draft up and running in no time so it wouldn't miss out on that huge pool of great football talent.

JEFFERSON IS A NO CLASS PUNK

JEFFERSON IS A NO CLASS PUNK. IT DOESNT TAKE A MAN TO KICK SOMEONE THAT IS ON THE GROUND. IF LOONEY LES HAS A TOUCH OF CLASS HE WILL PUT THIS SORRY PUNK WANNA BE QB IN THE STREET. WHEN YOU HAVE A QB LIKE MATT WHY WOULD YOU WANT WASTE TIME WITH THIS NO CLASS PUNK.

In listening to all of these sorted details coming in and seeing the different reactions to the situation, I have concluded we have lost the MAIN point (as usual).

The real point to this story is; the Starting QB for the LSU Tiger Football team had no business being in that bar at that time of night.  Period.

It can't happen if you aint there folks.

They could always transfer to Michigan State....

They always let guys back on the team who get into giant brawls and get arrested...wouldn't even miss a game.

Are you kidding me? "Things aren't looking good for J.J.". Give me a break. Those constables down in the bayou will make sure that this whole mess will be taken care of as long as a dozen season sideline passes are miraculously delivered @ Baton Rouge  PD headquarters. This is what makes Louisiana so great! Open corruption, political payoffs, and Bayou Bengal football rules this sordid area of the country. I will give the good citizens of this state that they thumb their collective noses on anything resembling advances in the 21st century.Keep it up  and have a nice 6-hour drive back to hell after Oregon puts the beat down on you.

Well, Jefferson and Johns may have a long time to think about their decisions.  The incident hurts the program perhaps more than just losing a couple of players.  Not good news for an LSU team that looked like it was on the upswing.  What is it about LSU?

If I'm in a fight and I can knock the guy to the ground, I'm going to continue kicking his tail until someone has to pull me off of him.  The last thing that I want is for the guy to get up and open a can of whoop ass on me too.  Jefferson was doing the right thing.  There are no silly rules in a fight, whether you started it or was defending yourself. 
So have you spent much time in jail, or are you just blowing smoke and speaking hypthecically? There used to at least be a moral code when two guys are fighting. I've always thought that if two CONSENTING adults want to fight it out, even the police shouldn't be able to stop them. It usually solved a lot of problems. People like you and Jefferson have screwed that up by being punk-a$$ed thugs.
According to your thinking, every fight should be to the death. I guess jail's cool now, so you wouldn't mind going back.
Lonely out here isn't it.
