Miles: RG Turner, DT Johnson will play vs. Georgia

BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) -

LSU coach Les Miles says starting right guard Trai Turner and starting defensive tackle Anthony Johnson will recover from recent injuries in time to play this Saturday when the No. 6 Tigers visit No. 9 Georgia.

Both players left last Saturday night's game against Auburn, Turner with an apparent right ankle injury and Johnson with a left leg injury.

Miles says trainers determined Turner, whose ankle was stepped on, has only a contusion, which he referred to as "great news."

The coach describes Johnson's injury as "basically a bruise," adding that he is "going to be fine" and that both players will "play from first snap on."

Miles describes the overall health of his team as "very good" heading into LSU's first significant road test this season.
