LSU Tigers star CB Derek Stingley Jr. (illness) hospitalized overnight

LSU star cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. was hospitalized overnight on Friday and is expected to be discharged soon, the school said in a statement hours before it’s season-opening game against Mississippi State on Saturday.

According to the statement, Stingley became “acutely ill” on Friday night but the condition was not COVID-19 related.

The statement did not say whether Stingley would be available to play. A source said, “It’s up to the doctors” in regard to Stingley’s availability.

“He will return to activity after a full evaluation by the medical team,” the statement said.

Stingley was a consensus All-American as a true freshman last season and was expected to anchor a defense as one of two returning starters.
