11.3.18 LSU v Alabama

LSU junior defensive end Breiden Fehoko (91) claps after a play during the Tigers' 29-0 loss against Alabama on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, in Tiger Stadium.

LSU coach Ed Orgeron announced junior defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko is out for the season.

Fehoko injured his bicep during LSU's 36-16 win against Georgia on Oct. 13, according to Brody Miller of Nola.com. Fehoko missed the following game against Mississippi State after starting the first seven games of the season, and then started against Alabama.

Fehoko tweeted soon after Orgeron's news conference that he had surgery on his injured bicep Monday morning. 

In his first season with the Tigers after transferring from Texas Tech, Fehoko ended the season with 16 tackles, 3 tackles for a loss, and 1.5 sacks.

Junior nose tackle Ed Alexander has started in Fehoko's place since the injury.
