Status of Offensive Tackle Will Campbell

We got some excellent news from coach Brian Kelly on Monday morning regarding the status of offensive tackle Will Campbell, who missed Saturday’s game when he was hospitalized for severe dehydration.

Campbell spent the weekend in the hospital, but Kelly said he passed a “major test” and is expected to be released on Monday. Regarding Campbell’s prospects of returning to the field, Kelly said he had one more hurdle to clear but that things continue to trend in a positive direction.

After having what Kelly has described as an “episode” during walkthroughs on Friday, Campbell was taken to the hospital via ambulance. It’s unclear exactly what happened, and Kelly has implied that there may be more than just dehydration.

After Saturday’s loss to Tennessee, Kelly said they had ruled out anything life-threatening.

Regardless, Monday’s news was certainly welcome, and it looks like Campbell may be nearly out of the woods. If he cannot play against Florida on Saturday, LSU will be down two starters on the offensive line. Garrett Dellinger suffered an MCL sprain on Saturday and is set to miss two weeks.
