The Tigers star running back's junior year was derailed due to ankle he suffered a team scrimmage in August, as he was unable to fully recover from the injury and would miss five games, including the LSU's Citrus Bowl win over Louisville. Say what you want about his final season at LSU, where he was still running for 6.53 yards per carry while hurt basically the whole season.
