LSU head coach Les Miles said he’s instituting a bar ban for his players after an overnight  fight involving senior tight end Dillon Gordon.

Gordon was stabbed three times in the chest in a fight in a bar near the LSU campus overnight Monday. His injuries are not life-threatening.

Miles said players can find social interaction in other places than “fight night clubs.”

“I am cutting it off, it is not worth it,” said Miles. “The reason you go out is to have social interaction. You can do it at home, at class, it can take place in a number of places. You don’t have to go to fight night club.”

Gordon tore his Achilles tendon early in the 2015 season. LSU is appealing to the NCAA to allow Gordon to play the 2016 season.
