LSU left tackle Will Campbell has returned to practice and is expected to play this weekend against Florida, coach Brian Kelly said Wednesday on the Southeastern Conference coaches teleconference.
Campbell, a true freshman who started the first five games, was released from the hospital Monday. He practiced Tuesday.
“He has cleared all the testing necessary for him to practice,” Kelly said. “He practiced yesterday. He will practice again today. And we expect him to play this Saturday.”

Campbell was hospitalized last Friday after what Kelly called “an episode” during a walk-through the day before LSU played Tennessee. An ambulance drove onto the practice field and took Campbell to the hospital. LSU said Campbell was treated for dehydration.
On Saturday, Kelly said multiple tests had “ruled out virtually any life-threatening, serious medical situations.” Campbell remained in the hospital through the weekend for further evaluation, and Kelly said he passed “a major test” Monday morning.
“We’ve got one more hurdle to pass, which, we’re confident, we’ll see what happens,” Kelly said Monday. “Things are trending in a really positive direction.”
