Fournette’s lead blocker to miss Florida game with injury

Moore had been igniting the ground-game with his blocking skills

LSU is No. 3 nationally in total rushing offense, averaging 346.4 yards a game on the ground. 

While running back Leonard Fournette is garnering much of the hype (and rightfully so), fullback JD Moore has been a big reason as to the success of LSU’s vaunted rushing attack. The former walk-on has not only opened up holes for Fournette consistently, but he’s been punishing people with his physical nature. 

Moore suffered a knee injury against South Carolina last weekend. As a result, he will be out for the next few weeks. 

It will be fascinating to see how this development affects the ground-game. Fournette likely will still get his yards against a tough Florida defense, but it will be more difficult. Bry’Keithon Mouton looks primed to fill in for the injured Moore.
