LSU linebacker Michael Divinity has left the team for personal reasons. The 6-foot-2, 241-pounder was a starter at the outside linebacker spot for the top-ranked Tigers and leaves a big void in the defense heading into Saturday’s showdown with No. 2 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
Divinity missed three games this season after injuring his leg against Vanderbilt, although specifics of that injury were never officially disclosed. His nameplate has already been removed from his locker, according to the report. He has 23 tackles, four tackles for loss and three sacks in five games this season, and had 10 tackles in the Week 2 win over Texas in Austin.
