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.

A star quarterback for a national championship contender should have better decision making skills than this; reguardless of who threw the first punch! He should not have put himself in that position.

That is exactly right and Les Miles is doing the right thing, and has handled this whole thing perfectly from the start in my opinion. I still stick with my karma thought however, if indeed there is a restraining order against Lowery by his girlfriend because he was beating her.

Details emerge on injuries suffered in LSU fight

It really does not matter to me who started the fight.  The bottom line to me is that someone kicked Lowery in the face while he was on the ground.  So far, the only name mentioned for that is Jefferson.  That is why he is suspended, and he should stay suspended.
