LSU safeties could return to face Arkansas

LSU could get sophomore safeties Eric Reid and Craig Loston back for the Arkansas game.

Loston, who dealt with a concussion and a hand injury, missed the Ole Miss game. Reid, who is a starter, left the Ole Miss game with a thigh injury.

For now, Miles feels good that Loston will return, and while he expects Reid to play, nothing is definite. Loston did move around some Tuesday.

“I don’t think there’s any question that Loston will play,” Miles said Wednesday. “Eric Reid is much better. He ran yesterday and felt good.

“We’re very optimistic about Eric Reid.”

If Reid isn’t able to go, Miles said Loston is prepared to play the entire game, though he hasn’t played much in the secondary since the early part of the season.
