LSU’s starting left guard, Josh Williford, suffered a potentially career-ending concussion at Thursday’s practice, according to Scott Rabalais of The Advocate.

The injury is devastating news for Williford, who was sidelined for most of the 2012 season following a concussion he suffered against the Florida Gators. Williford sat out the final seven games of the season.

The loss would be big for Les Miles and Co., especially after the massive exodus of underclassmen this past year. Williford is the only senior on the starting offensive line.

If he is unable to go, the Tigers will look to sophomore Vadal Alexander to step into the role.

For Williford, the most important thing is ensuring his well-being beyond football.
