LSU has apparently lost one of its key defensive weapons for its Chick-fil-A Bowl game against Clemson.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting that sophomore punter Brad Wing has been suspended for the bowl game because of the results of a drug test.
A left-footed punter from Melbourne, Australia, Wing also serves as LSU's holder on place kicks.
As a redshirt freshman in 2011, Wing averaged 44.4 yards per punt and had only 12 of his 59 punts returned. He placed 27 kicks inside the opponent's 20-yard line.
He followed up this season by averaging 44.8 yards on 59 punts, with 21 downed inside the 20-yard line, 17 fair catches and 10 touchbacks. Nearly a third of his punts went for 50 yards or longer.
Wing will be placed by fellow Australian Jamie Keehn.
