LSU football coach Brian Kelly shared some positive news Wednesday.

On the SEC coaches' teleconference, Kelly revealed that offensive lineman Will Campbell is expected to return to the field when the Tigers travel to Florida this week.

Campbell missed last week's game after he was hospitalized for severe dehydration on Friday. 

Kelly said Campbell was released from the hospital Monday and has since been cleared to resume football activities.

While news that Campbell is okay after a scary incident is welcome, his return will also be important on the field. 

The true freshman started each of the first five games at left tackle for LSU this season. 

The Tigers missed him during a 40-13 loss to Tennessee last week. LSU gave up five sacks and nine tackles for loss.
