LSU running back Leonard Fournette was initially expected not to play, decided to dress out after the pregame scuffle with Florida.

Fournette, who is draft-eligible after this season, will likely miss the final home game of his career at LSU. He was dressed in a warmup suit during pregame warmups.

After a scuffle between LSU and Florida players, Fournette reportedly told Coach Ed Orgeron he wanted to play. Fournette was shoved by a Florida assistant coach in the pregame scuffle.

Fournette has dealt with an ankle injury the entire season since initially hurting it during the preseason training camp. He re-injured the ankle, for a third time this year against Arkansas last week. He has missed 2 of the 9 games LSU has played, although making appearances in the last 3.
