The LSU offensive line was close to full strength once again Thursday morning with the return of right guard Miles Frazier to the lineup.

Frazier missed the past three spring practices for unknown reasons, but was back at his usual spot as the Tigers went through their sixth of 15 spring practices.

His return allowed offensive line coach Brad Davis to field two complete units after having just nine players available during the last practice Saturday.

Backup Kimo Makane’ole, who moved up to the first-team on Saturday, was back at his second-team left tackle spot Thursday.

The first team consisted of left tackle Will Campbell, left guard Garrett Dellinger, center Marlon Martinez, Frazier and right tackle Emery Jones.

Martinez continued to work at center in place of starter Charles Turner, who is out for the spring with a knee injury.

Joining Makane’ole on the second unit were left guard Kells Bush, center Bo Bordelon, right guard Wes Woodward and right tackle Jack McDevitt.

CBs Harris, Johnson out

With Syracuse transfer Duce Chestnut already out until summer workouts, the cornerback position was missing two other key players during the 20-minute media viewing window.

Texas A&M transfer Denver Harris and JK Johnson, who transferred in from Ohio State, were not seen when the Tigers went through individual drills.

Sophomore Laterrance Welch and Southeastern transfer Zy Alexander, who has taken first-team reps earlier this spring, worked with the No. 1 defense Tuesday.

Chatman in charge

LSU’s defensive line went through its first practice without coach Jamar Cain, who announced Saturday that he was leaving to join the staff of new Denver Broncos coach Sean Payton.

Hired by coach Brian Kelly as a defensive analyst in January, Chatman put the Tigers through individual drills as the interim coach in place of Cain.

Chatman was also a defensive analyst for former LSU coach Ed Orgeron in 2021, but left to be the defensive line coach at Colorado a year ago. He also served as interim defensive coordinator late in the season.

Chatman returned to LSU after Deion Sanders took over as the Buffaloes coach.

What’s next?

Nearing the halfway point of spring drills, LSU will return to the practice field for a workout Saturday morning.
