Les Miles' Wednesday teleconference divulged quite a bit of information in regards to his squad's upcoming game versus Mississippi State.

The potential return of Sione Teuhema and Deondre Clark is an interesting development. Both were not dressed for the (official) opener versus McNeese State. It appears as if they've done enough to earn the opportunity to travel with the team to Starkville. Both should provide depth behind starter Lewis Neal at defensive end.

A narrative exists in terms of LSU being hindered by having the season opener cancelled. The cancellation didn't allow for sophomore signal-caller Brandon Harris get his proverbial feet wet versus a lower-level opponent. He'll instead open the 2015 season on the road versus a tough SEC team.

Miles is taking the half-glass-full approach when speaking about the cancelled game. To be fair, Mississippi State doesn't have any tape to go off of from the first week. Technically, some of LSU's younger players also did experience a game day-like atmosphere.

There was also some positive news on injured defensive back Jalen Mills. Still recovering from a leg injury, Mills is on the mend. A quick return would be a massive coup for LSU. Mills has started every game in his career, and is easily the most experienced member of the Tigers' secondary.
