BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Les Miles and his Tigers went back to work Tuesday after a bomb scare on the LSU campus Monday put everything on hold, including practice for the second ranked Tigers.

The team worked on their game plan for the struggling Auburn Tigers. Missing from practice was the team's second leading rusher, Alfred Blue, one half of coach Miles' "shake and bake."

Blue hurt his knee in the third quarter of Saturday's win over Idaho. He will miss this weekend's game against Auburn and possibly several more games.

Blue has 270 rushing yards, second behind Kenny Hilliard, who leads the team with 303 rushing yards—including 8.3 yards a carry. Hilliard also has six rushing touchdowns.

LSU is blessed with great depth at running back, and while leading rusher Kenny Hilliard will get more carries, Michael Ford, Spencer Ware and Jeremy Hill will all see more action.

Hill saw his first action this weekend against the Vandals, rushing for 61 yards and two touchdowns.

Kickoff against Auburn this Saturday is at 6pm on ESPN.

    Blake Sims was good enough to finish his first start at quarterback for Alabama, getting plenty of help from Amari Cooper, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry, and the second-ranked Crimson Tide held off West Virginia...
    Blake Sims took a seat on the bench next to Jake Coker after leading Alabama to a score and the two chatted for a few minutes before it was time for the offense to go back on the field.
