Spring practice report: Day 11 

March, 22, 2012
BATON ROUGE -- Maybe it was a good chance to take a rest before next week's spring game, or maybe it was a precaution. It's hard to say.

But LSU's football practice Thursday -- it's 11th of the spring -- was one of the most lightly participated of the spring season so far. Between offense and defense, the Tigers were missing about six major contributors.

Craig Loston, who has had hold of the starting strong safety spot all spring, was out, and he was replaced by Ronald Martin in the first string secondary. Loston was just talking last week about how the key to his success so far this year has been his ability to stay healthy.
