Shepard, a starter, was suspended before LSU's season opener against Oregon for breaking an NCAA rule that bars discussing ongoing investigations with teammates. The probe concerns the relationship scouting service provider and purported street agent Willie Lyles has had with LSU and a number of other schools.
LSU plays on Saturday against Northwestern State and next week at Mississippi State before facing the Mountaineers on Sept. 24.
Shepard, a junior, has been allowed to practice during the suspension. Last season, he had 226 yards and two touchdowns rushing and 254 yards and one touchdown receiving.
He is expected to be a starter this season.
