  Senior defensive back Jay Ward, a versatile and essential part of the LSU secondary the last few seasons, declared Wednesday for the 2023 NFL Draft. He told The Advocate he will still play in the Citrus Bowl. Ward carved out a backup role as a freshman on LSU's 2019 national championship team. He turned into a full-time starter the last two years after moving from cornerback to safety, but he handled multiple positions depending on where LSU needed him most. "My time in Baton Rouge has been special, but I have reached a point in my career where I have to make a decision about my future," Ward wrote in a social media post. "I will be pursuing a lifelong dream and declaring for the 2023 NFL Draft."

Ward, who signed as a three-star recruit from Moultrie, Georgia, had one more year of eligibility because of an NCAA extension given to athletes during the coronavirus pandemic. He accepted an invitation to play in the Senior Bowl. In four seasons, Ward started 22 games. He recorded 161 tackles, 17 pass breakups and six interceptions. His highlights included an acrobatic interception along the sideline in an upset win over Florida in 2020, a blocked field goal to preserve a win against Arkansas the same year and a fumble returned for a touchdown to help beat Auburn this fall. - Baton Rouge Advocate

  While Ward has had some tough moments this season, including during LSU's season-opening loss to Mississippi State, the sophomore was a big factor in the Tigers pulling out a 27-24 win over Arkansas on Saturday. With the Razorbacks in position for a potential game-winning touchdown in the final two minutes, Ward broke up a pass on a third-and-3 from LSU's 27-yard line. On the next play, Ward blocked a potential game-tying field goal to seal the win for the Tigers. - Birmingham News

  Sophomore cornerback Jay Ward, one of the young defensive backs who struggled in LSU's 44-34 loss to Mississippi State, played Saturday after missing two weeks in preseason camp following knee surgery on a torn meniscus. LSU coach Ed Orgeron had said before that Ward missed practice, and, in an interview Tuesday morning with WNXX-FM 104.5's "Off the Bench," he revealed the details of Ward's injury. "Jay Ward had a meniscus tear and had a slight operation on his knee and was just coming back," Orgeron said in the interview. "And hadn't practiced at all. There were some things there that we were hampered by."

It isn't often that Orgeron reveals the details of an LSU player's injury, but the update offers more explanation why Ward missed practice and was in a precarious position when he helped fill in for All-American cornerback Derek Stingley. Stingley missed the game after spending Friday night in a hospital with an acute illness, and Orgeron told WNXX that he still expects Stingley to return to the team Tuesday or Wednesday after medical clearance. "We didn't even know (Ward) could play," Orgeron told reporters Monday. "He played a lot of snaps. I thought he did a fairly good job, but obviously was a little rusty there." - Baton Rouge Advocate
