Four Tigers out for the season due to academics

Tahj Jones, projected in preseason to be a starting LSU linebacker, is among four Tigers who have been declared academically ineligible for the 2012 football season.

Wednesday,  LSU head coach Les Miles confirmed a previous media report on the status of the quartet.

Senior tight end Tyler Edwards, sophomore linebacker D.J. Welter and sophomore offensive lineman Evan Washington are also out for the season.

Luke Muncie started in place of Jones, the only one of the ineligible players considered part of the team's two-deep depth chart, for the first two games.
