LSU sophomore punter Brad Wing will not play for the Tigers in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, a source close to the situation confirmed Thursday. LSU is set to play Clemson in the game Dec. 31 in the Georgia Dome. Wing, a left-footed kicker from Melbourne, Australia, will likely be replaced by fellow Australian Jamie Keehn, a freshman from Queensland. LSU Coach Les Miles could not be reach for comment. UPDATE from Tiger Rag: According to one source in the athletic department, Wing’s suspension is related to a failed drug test. Wing was suspended for LSU’s opener against North Texas, also a result of a failed drug test, the source said. If the suspension stands, Wing, who averaged 44.8 yards per punt in 2012 after averaging 44.4 yards per punt in 2011, could have played his last game as a Tiger. The redshirt sophomore is eligible for the 2013 NFL Draft and, according to multiple sources in the athletic department, will likely pursue a professional career and enter the draft.
