LSU WR Makes Popeyes a Staple of Rehab Diet, Gains 30 Pounds

Popeyes blamed for LSU weight gain

Fried chicken is good. Fried chicken from Popeyes Louisiana Chicken is the stuff murders are made of.

However, it's not an advisable diet for a wide receiver at LSU. For an example of why, we turn to Travin Dural.


“Yeah, Popeyes was putting a lot of weight on me,” the fifth-year senior wide receiver from Breaux Bridge said this week, skillfully transferring the blame.


“I went home one day, and my mom was like, ‘Man, you look stuffed,’” Dural said. “So, that’s when I knew it was time for change. I was almost 230 pounds in the spring and I played at 203 last year.”

Dural also suffered a hamstring surgery back in November, which also aided his weight gain. He has since avoided Popeyes and eaten his chicken grilled. He is back in the "205 range," according to him.
