A reporter asked for clarification, but Orgeron did not provide specific numbers.
“I don’t know the percentage. I hope once you take it, you don’t get it back. I’m not a doctor. I think they have that 90 day window, so most of the players who have taken it, we believe they will be eligible for the games. “
LSU Athletics did not respond to CNN Sports’ request for clarification on Orgeron’s comments, specifically the number behind the word “more”.
