Junior linebacker Chris Hill will not play against Southern

Junior linebacker Chris Hill, who won a fall competition for a starting job at middle linebacker, will not play in the Ragin’ Cajuns season opener against Southern.

A school spokesman declined to give a reason for Hill’s absence Saturday, saying media will be informed why Hill didn’t play after the game is over.

Hill beat out a couple players for the starting job, including senior Trae Johnson and sophomore Trey Granier. Johnson will move into the starting lineup in Hill’s absence Saturday.

Hill turned in a career-high 38 tackles in 12 games last season.
