BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - LSU coach Les Miles says starting right guard Trai Turner and starting defensive tackle Anthony Johnson will recover from recent injuries in time to play this Saturday when the No. 6 Tigers visit No. 9 Georgia.
Both players left last Saturday night's game against Auburn, Turner with an apparent right ankle injury and Johnson with a left leg injury.
Miles says trainers determined Turner, whose ankle was stepped on, has only a contusion, which he referred to as ``great news.''
The coach describes Johnson's injury as ``basically a bruise,'' adding that he is ``going to be fine'' and that both players will ``play from first snap on.''
Miles describes the overall health of his team as ``very good'' heading into LSU's first significant road test this season.
