LSU football coach Brian Kelly acknowledged Tuesday he and the coaching staff need to get wide receiver Jack Bech “more involved” in the offense. Bech was a limited participant during most of the preseason due to a stress fracture. Because of the injury, Kelly said they’ve been “cautious” in bringing him back into the fold.
But now, with New Mexico (2-1) coming to Tiger Stadium on Saturday (6:30 p.m., ESPN+), Kelly insists that Bech is 100% and ready to play more.
“Jack’s doing everything he’s been asked of,” Kelly said. “There shouldn’t be any narrative out there that he hasn’t or he’s injured.”
After having a breakout freshman season, Bech has two receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown this season for the Tigers (2-1).
“I think, quite frankly, as coaches and it starts with me, we’ve got to get him more involved. And you’re going to begin to see that take place this weekend,” Kelly said during his weekly SEC teleconference on Wednesday.
