The fighting Tigers will take on Mississippi State Thursday night again without starting Quarterback Jordan Jefferson.
The Jefferson family had hoped his suspension would’ve ended following Saturday night’s game against Northwestern.
The left for Starkville and Jordan was not on the plane.
“Everybody is hurt, it’s unfair to him,” says Angela Lucas, Jordan’s aunt.
Jordan’s suspension stems from an alleged fight back on August 19 outside Shady’s bar in Baton Rouge.
The victim Andrew Lowery claims Jefferson and a number of players beat him up and Jefferson went as far as to kick him in the head a number of times.
Jefferson was arrested on 2nd Degree Battery charges which is a felony
Head Football Coach Les Miles immediately suspended the strong armed QB from Destrehan.
Jefferson maintains he did nothing wrong.
Lucas says Jordan’s attorney has proof signed affidavits from individuals who said Jordan didn’t do anything.
Lucas also said Lowery was supposed to recant his statement now saying that Jordan did not have any involvement.
But, Lowery’s attorney Michael Bienvenu said that’s not true.
“It’s always a different story,” says Lucas.
She says the next story they want to see is the one of Jordan’s return to the field.
