BATON ROUGE, La. -- When LSU fullback J.C. Copeland left the Towson game last week with an apparent knee injury, it looked scary.

He didn't put any weight on his knee when he was helped off the field. It was iced and he walked off the field on crutches, putting no weight on the leg. On Monday, Tiger players and coach Les Miles suggested his backup, Connor Neighbors, was about to make his first start.

So it came as a bit of a surprise to the gathered media Wednesday when Miles said that Copeland was not only back at practice, but running with the first team heading into Saturday's game at Florida.
