I've got losers most wanted bar and grill in Tennessee and -- members of the former LSU quarterback who was drafted by the Tennessee Titans is in town because they start training camp on Friday.

Sucker punches right in the face I am. -- -- was not treated for any injuries. And neither he nor the bar. Are pursuing criminal charges and ends the alleged puncher. Has met -- has not talked about this I'm sure is gonna get asked about well. Once he reports to camp in the media as I can speak with him. Someone sucker punches me. And I did absolutely nothing to provoke it other than say -- about that -- Think I might pursuit yeah. God as you might be right. Maybe it depends since he is now a pro. Might want to congress. The titans and see you know now. That they've got an opinion on things. You know in my gases and as he again yes and spoken that I've seen. Anywhere yet from my guess is he's like you know -- I don't wanna start my career here in Tennessee. But being the guy who goes after. Somebody. And I don't know where -- you know we don't know much about the guy who punched him in the face. Because there was not a police report may. This suspect information apparently it was not gathered at least -- and publicized it one. ISO but you know if if he's a local he's from real weapons via. Maybe that you know and I -- -- guy who's you know haven't. They have arrested the start like -- doubt that he found a fine. And and that could potentially generate headlines. For -- burger. For weeks now week two weeks hearings. You know you know even want to I don't -- And a big splashy. Files charges plus he did. He met burgers got sorted past few well. He left Georgia because he was accused of sexual assault. And maybe he has on all of that. Charged back up and maybe just thought hey well this pretend this never happened and maybe -- will get out there. Today's. Day majors social media and everything in TMZ like reporting everywhere but stuff like this comes. I -- but I think you're right I think he wants to have major go away as fast as possible. Acupressure artist. Our question. -- it -- the audience yeah this guy's name is because I'm thinking about his career and the same stuff you sent. All the talking at fifteen minutes or sports are in time we'll see what analysts sent this text -- late 7870. Viewers -- met burger and it went down the way the owner of losers.

Rain chances on Wednesday at 40%. -- right at 91 and Thursday it will face and spotty downpours 30% chance of highs of 91. From the pinpoint forecast center I'm meteorologist Clark but -- We have clouds in the sky and 78 degrees at the airport in -- clear over the lake eighty degrees the Lakefront airport clearance -- balance 72 degrees I'm gave -- the early edition of WWL -- -- tropical depression -- is still way way way out there in the Atlantic. And forecast still -- -- not become tropical storm Bertha in the foreseeable future anyway we'll see if it even holds together one person text -- an 87870. I resentment -- hell yeah -- press charges. OK another ones that I would get my buddies to find these guys and whip that tides. Behind that what he says but when it. Another one said. I would -- ago and not return to that place morbid thoughts coming up here on WWL Steve dollars a month sucker punches you in the face. After you say he had good luck with that to a rollback. The present darkness. I've probably fight back I'm not gonna press chart that court for the honor of losers. Our anger all -- man Berger didn't fight back. Yet he's in a different situation and -- of course he has his you know whole NFL career ahead of him and can be sued for millions of dollars so Smart very mature move by members that the fight back but. Discount. And I guess in his position to style won him make waves roll and roll with the charges. And he didn't suffer any you know him that to seek any treatment for his injuries so just let bygones be bygones there and you know just chalk it up so you know another moronic fans coming up to you by the -- scary when you things like that happen you always have to be aware when you're an athlete yet when you're aware of sports -- -- let's talk about that well good morning everyone team it's two days to the -- -- -- West Virginia for the start of training camp. All pro guard Jahri Evans is anxious to get back together with his teammates. And BD and the grind. Yet figured I had great result football memory you back to basics you know back deliberate -- -- training camp and that is due back to work. Meanwhile saints nose tackle John Jenkins who -- organized team activities after having pectoral surgery has been placed on the physically unable to perform was to begin training camp. The KG -- Bobby Hebert is hoping the team is just being cautious with last year's third round draft it. That's significant John Jenkins a dealing is pictorial injury unit in the rotation longer Brodrick Bunkley very important so that obviously is a concern outside linebacker China as a global also -- Clinton camp on the PUP list. While rookie offensive tackle to Von Brooks has been placed on the non football injury list. LSU baseball coach Paul would -- introduced new assistant Andy Andy -- borrow as well as the tigers 2015. Schedules. Once again we're playing a series with a big twelve opponent Kansas to open the season this may be the toughest opening series. But we've had in my nine years here's a coach. Kansas made it to the NCAA regionals this past season before getting eliminated by Kentucky. -- she's -- baseball season opens against the jayhawks on February 13. And this -- begin to begin their four game series in Iowa would be five to four victory. Disease preacher -- Villa nueva improved to nine and six on the year tossing six innings of scoreless ball while allowing just three hits and striking out four. Today a four on sports -- the NFL network says that shall pay in is the -- best coach in the league. Where would you rank the saints head coach plus as we continue to giro for training camp which players are entering a make or break years for the -- gold.

Somewhere else then you're out here tomorrow yeah leave find out tomorrow to West Virginia anxious to see what it's like out there and pretty excited it's. I'd like a big stepping your career kind of thing getting to do this kind of thing. Yeah knows he will be to hearing your sports reports from West Virginia the route to training camps will be with us just. To be a thousand miles away. One person text me at 878 sentences that would oppressed more than charges but I think that members showed a lot of discipline another person that may be met -- posse took care of it. No reports indicate that. One says he probably just wanted to go away. You ought not help I'll call eight domestic it's. A president our -- a gang violence and I think it's amazing it's -- so much restraint in the situation you know he won it not that you'd have backed the big strong guy. Yet totally agree with that too I mean like my first instinct would -- obviously be to fight back but when you're in that position just starting out his rookie career and not wanting to. I guess tarnish his name right now in the NFL just been punched in the sucker -- you and even ready for it right near you would look at that one guy that one guy -- from from the other side according to the owner of the -- got to watch out for those -- folks.

And one that really drives me crazy lately is that a red light it seems. The first person in line is the one who pulls -- -- -- do what's up and on the phone to when it turns to green and they have no idea now that you're sitting there waiting quite badly to look up and notice the light is green big joke is they're too busy texting or emailing or whatever their Dylan.

Forecasts are so I know you're keeping an eye also on tropical depression number two but let me out there in the Atlanta. It is it's way out in the Atlantic east of the Caribbean so we're talking way out there. And it's probably not even gonna last another two or three days it's expected to dissipate because it's so much dry air had a -- And -- it can become tropical storm -- I think it's -- -- tropical depression number two before kind of fizzles out as it reaches the lesser Antilles. All right what we know you'll keep an eye on it just in case anything happens but the rest of us very much don't have to worry about it yep -- well that's good news and it's all around that.

You Griffey left school you know you see guys be more hydrated because it would give a little bit more effort maybe. And they would be if they -- and you know we're human environment -- Meanwhile the saints have placed defensive tackle John Jenkins and outside linebacker chat at a zoo well on the physically unable to perform list. Jenkins suffered a pectoral injury during all season in the cajun cannon Bobby -- has its fingers crossed that the second year pro will be able to come off the PUP list before the season -- their third round draft -- query was drafted god -- lived up to expectations as far as far as would rob Bryant expected on him also rookie offensive tackle to Von Brooks was placed on non football injury list and undrafted rookie defensive tackle Moses McCray was -- LSU baseball coach pulmonary and as the tigers incoming signing class which is rated number one of the nation by a perfect game and Jerry also talked about the -- season opener as the 2015 schedule was released.

There's no one hold out for a better contract -- like everything is just how it should -- Yeah and fortunate that John Jenkins has been put on the PUP list but hopefully it quickly -- able to perform right -- before the season begins. He'll be able to come off the list if not he will be forced to miss the first six games at least. On the year fees to start the season but he can come off -- any time during training camp. A good sign though -- each -- -- not on the PP let's put physically unable to perform. He just had back surgery which is a great sign of -- he really will be ready for it right so that's that's a big deal for the saints obviously six year. 54 million dollar contract giving the state he -- that big landings expected.
