When tight end Jamal Pettigrew went out for the season with a knee injury this summer, Moss was expected to be the guy to step up behind Foster Moreau. Instead, he hasn’t played all year.
He practiced through Wednesday of the Auburn game four weeks ago, but by Thursday Orgeron said he wasn’t available.
His absence has led LSU to incorporating receiver Racey McMath in a tight end role the last few weeks to give another athletic option who can block. If Moss is healthy, he could give another passing option out of the position.
