According to the Tigers, Banks is “under the supervision of team doctors” and is now back at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
The entire squad ran out to help, and then Banks was carried off the field on a stretcher. In the aftermath of the play, when Banks was on the ground, Auburn’s Wesley Steiner quickly threw up a signal to the LSU bench.
The specifics of his wound weren’t known at the time. In this play, Banks was called for targeting. The final score was 21–17, and LSU was victorious.
During his time at Ohio State, Banks played in 36 games and made 14 starts as a graduate transfer. Banks had only appeared in one game for LSU, but he had already recorded four tackles.
Banks spent his first two seasons (2018–2019) at Ohio State on the bench, where he had 12 tackles and one interception in relief roles. He was a starter for the 2020 season as a junior. He ended the year with 23 tackles and a fumble recovery for a touchdown.
