LSU Freshmen DT Punches Glass Window, Suffers Serious Injury
LSU defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao was reportedly having an argument with his girlfriend when he broke a glass window, suffering a horrific arm injury, according to a report from Jim Kleinpeter of The Times Picayune.
Citing sources, Kleinpeter reports Lealaimatafao punched through a glass window near LSU’s indoor practice facility, tearing his bicep to the point where his bone was exposed.
Early reports suggested that Lealaimatafao’s injury was so serious, his arm may require amputation. However, reports now indicate an amputation will not be needed, but the injury will require serious, extensive surgery.
Lealaimatafao is a seventeen-year old, 4-star recruit from San Antonio, Texas. LSU defensive line coach Brick Haley asked Lealaimatafao to be ready to play in 2014.
With the recent injury, it’s unlikely the 6’0, 300 pound Lealaimatafao will see the playing field this year. As a true freshmen, he can redshirt and maintain 4 years of eligiblity.
