LSU suspends RG Ingram

LSU coach Ed Orgeron announced Friday that starting right guard Ed Ingram has been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.

Ingram started the final 12 games as a freshman and had been listed as the starter on the depth chart as recently as Wednesday, according to The Times-Picayune.

Orgeron wouldn’t expand on what Ingram had done to run afoul of policy.

“It’s a violation of team policy,” Orgeron said. “We have a policy set in place by the university. He broke that policy. We just need to see what happens.”

Damien Lewis, a junior college transfer, was expected to back up both guard positions but will take over Ingram’s spot for the foreseeable future.

Said Orgeron of the roster shake-up: “It’s an unfortunate circumstance for any one of our teammates but we’re real excited about Damien.”
