Myles Brennan in a Battle To Regain His Starting Position
Myles Brennan only played three games for the Tigers last season before suffering a season-ending injury.
For the first time, the media was allowed to attend a LSU football practice yesterday. One of the most interesting developments coming out of the practice was sophomore QB Max Johnson taking most of the snaps with the first team offense.
It appears LSU is gearing up for a position battle at quarterback this spring leading into the 2021 season. Fifth-year junior QB Myles Brennan was on an impressive pace in 2020 before an abdominal injury sidelined him passing for 1,112 yards, 11 touchdowns, and three interceptions. Brennan is a competitor and hasn't gone anywhere. He will compete for more reps and ultimately, the starting job.
Brennan's injury was very rare. In fact, doctors said they had never seen anything like it before. LSU sent the x-rays to NFL, MLB, and other professional sport team doctors and none of them had ever fixed an abdominal tear like Brennan's. A Baton Rouge doctor told Myles if he had surgery to repair the injury, the procedure would be named after him. Brennan ended up deciding to let the injury heal on its own, and it seems to have worked as he says he's back to 100%.
