BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

LSU starting junior left tackle Chris Faulk was injured in practice Wednesday and will miss Saturday's game versus the Washington Huskies.

Head coach Les Miles did not say what kind of injury Faulk suffered.

"He got a bit of an injury and we don't know exactly how bad," said Miles. 

Miles named three guys that will likely replace him in the lineup.

Josh Dworaczyk, a 6-year senior; sophomore La'El Collins or Alex Hurst are all in line to fill the shoes left by Faulk.

Miles said the coaching staff won't make a decision right now on what it will do Saturday.

He likes the fact the team has the ability to make the adjustments before the game, rather than on game day.

Miles was not sure how long Faulk would be out, but hopes to see him heal quickly and not have the injury linger past this week.
