LSU DL Maason Smith Suffers Knee Injury

LSU and Florida State are squaring off in New Orleans in the Caesars Superdome on Sunday night. One of the Tigers’ most important defenders suffered a potentially serious injury on LSU’s first defensive drive of the game. 

Maason Smith, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound defensive lineman from Terrebonne High School in Houma, Louisiana, injured his knee while celebrating a stop on second-and-7 from the 26-yard line. Defensive back Major Burns made the stop on Lawrence Toafili, and while Smith jumped to celebrate the play, his knee buckled and went down to the turf.

You can have a look at the incident below.
