Report: LSU QB Jefferson, other Tigers, involved in fight

LSU senior quarterback Jordan Jefferson and some unidentified teammates were reportedly involved in a fight outside a Baton Rouge bar early Friday morning.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reported that Jefferson and about "15-20 LSU football players" were present when the incident occurred around 2 a.m. (ct) a at Shady's bar.

"We are aware of the incident that took place at an off-campus location at which some of our players were present," LSU head coach Les Miles said in a statement issued Friday afternoon. "We don't know to what extent our players were involved. We are trying to gather as much information as possible to get a better understanding of what exactly took place last night."

The players were gone when police arrived and began interviewing witnesses. According to the report, four people involved in the fight sustained minor injuries and transported themselves to local hospitals.

Miles held a meeting with his players Friday to discuss the matter.

Jefferson, a two-year starter, is expected to help the Tigers challenge for the BCS title this season.
