LSU starters Trai Turner and Anthony Johnson left during Saturday’s game after being injured, but both players have been cleared and will play in the upcoming game against No. 9 Georgia in the SEC’s game of the week.

Turner sustained an ankle injured after it was stepped on in the first half against Auburn, but the trainers said it was only a contusion. The strong offensive guard played a big part of LSU’s 223 yards in the first two quarters.

Johnson suffered from a leg injury that would of been a huge loss to the LSU defense, but head coach Les Miles said it was “basically a bruise.” Johnson, a 294 defensive tackle, is projected to start against Georgia. So far this season he has recorded 13 tackles, including 2.5 for a loss.
