The sophomore wide receiver was having a solid performance prior to exiting the game.The Tigers decimated the Commodores on the road in large part because of their offense. Joe Burrow broke the school’s record for most touchdown passes in a single game with six.Burrow found a lot of success throwing to Marshall early in the game. He reeled in four passes for 75 yards before leaving the game with an injury.Marshall’s injury occurred in the second half against Vanderbilt. Later in the afternoon he returned on crutches with a boot on his left foot. Check it out:Terrace Marshall on crutches with a boot on his left foot.

LSU should have an update on the talented wideout following more medical tests.Not having Marshall for at least a month would be tough for the Tigers. Nonetheless, the offense has more than enough playmakers to overcome his absence.It also helps LSU that its bye week is coming up. That’ll give the offense a chance to figure out how they’ll fill the void left behind by Marshall.
