Title: LSU's Arden Key took some time away from football; came back

LSU edge rusher Arden Key is leaving the football team temporarily for "personal reasons," the school announced Wednesday. His father says the player is healthy and "fine."

Key, a standout rising junior who many expect to be a high selection in the 2018 NFL draft, broke LSU's single-season sack record last year and is poised for an All-American-like year in 2016.

LSU is not releasing specifics nor will they.   Key remains enrolled in school.

LSU expects defensive end Arden Key to return to the active roster before the 2017 season begins -- probably this summer --

Without Key, who set a school record with 12 sacks last season, or 2016 seniors Tashawn Bower and Lewis Neal, who can defensive coordinator Dave Aranda count on to supply a steady pass rush off the edge?

Orgeron and Aranda can offer extra practice reps to the contenders at a spot that has no proven performers behind Key. Here are some of the players who should get a long look this spring:

Andre Anthony: NCAA ruled Anthony ineligible last season.

Sci Martin: The resemblance between Key's game and Martin's was a big reason why Martin was such a big get...

Signee K'Lavon Chaisson will not be on campus for spring practice...

There are a number of possibilities why Key is not with the team entering the spring. Most of them would be speculative, but according to sources in the program, there is a growing confidence that the star BUCK linebacker should return at some point before the season.

The silver lining here is that Key is entering his junior season at LSU and his second season under defensive coordinator Dave Aranda. While Aranda will continue to tweak things with his new personnel, it shouldn’t take long before an all-world talent like Key adjusts and fits right back in.

Missing the spring is in no way ideal for Key, but it also isn’t that big of a deal. It’s likely he has personal issues to tend to —

In fact, it creates an opportunity for inexperienced players Andre Anthony, Sci Martin and Ray Thornton to get reps in the front 7. So when Key does return, LSU will be deeper and ready to contribute in the fall.

Arden Key will miss the beginning of fall camp, but no additional timeline was added. Thursday, Orgeron added a little more specificity to the discussion, saying he doesn’t expect Key to don pads “in the next couple of weeks.”

Orgeron didn’t rule Key out for the season opener versus BYU on Sept. 2. Obviously, the sooner Key gets back the better things will be for LSU. Key is a projected top-10 NFL draft pick and was a preseason All-SEC honoree after setting the LSU single-season sack record in 2016 with 12.

Key is on the preseason watch lists for the Bronko Nagusrki and Bednarik Awards, given to the top defensive player in the nation, and for the Butkus Award given to the nation’s best linebacker. If Key is unable to go, LSU will likely call on true freshman K’Lavon Chaisson or redshirt freshmen Ray Thornton and Andre Anthony.

Orgeron will speak to the media for the first time to open up fall camp on Sunday.

Arden Key, the All-American edge rusher who’s recovering from shoulder surgery, is visiting his own doctor next week to gauge his progress and determine his playing status, Orgeron said.

Key has been practicing during camp in a limited role, not able yet to have contact because of the shoulder, which was operated on in late May. The coach said earlier this week that he doesn’t expect Key to play in the season opener against BYU. That final decision could come from Key’s personal doctor.

“We’ve got guys that see other doctors and do the things they need to do. We OK’ed it with our guys,” Orgeron said when asked about Key visiting a doctor not affiliated with the school.

“He’s going to see his doctor next week. Our doctors are going to talk and they’re going to make a decision and they’ll let me know when he’s going to go.”

LSU film study: Why can’t Arden Key make plays against teams like Troy?

Coming into the season, Key was the most-feared defender in the SEC. The preseason first-team All-America edge rusher was supposed to be the heir to Myles Garrett, Jonathan Allen and Derek Barnett as the conference’s quarterback-crushing sack-master. And why not think that? When you post 12 sacks as a sophomore, setting an LSU single-season record, and get first-round NFL draft hype before you turn 21 years old, your junior year is supposed to be even better. It’s supposed to be your showcase year. The year that gets you paid.

It hasn’t been.

Arden Key's sack on the last play of the game was, I believe, his first full sack since his return five games ago. #LSU
