Gus Malzahn shares the latest update on Anthony Schwartz heading into the Oregon opener
The waiting game continues for Auburn as Gus Malzahn has shared the latest update on his team’s speed receiver Anthony Schwartz.
After missing the spring due to his Auburn track obligations, the sophomore receiver was injured early in training camp, as he suffered a broken bone in his finger. While Malzahn has given no real indication on his receiver’s status for the opener against Oregon, Wednesday’s update is at least promising.
According to Malzahn, Schwartz will be included on Auburn’s travel roster, which indicates there is at least a chance the sophomore suits up for the Tigers on Saturday.
“He is going to make the trip with us (to Arlington) but, like I said, it will be a game-time situation as far as he is concerned,” Malzahn said on Wednesday’s SEC Teleconference.
Schwartz racked up 568 yards of total offense for the Tigers last season, including making 22 catches for 357 yards and rushing the ball 27 times for 211 yards. His speed is a game-changer for Auburn’s offense and is a player Oregon will have to account for on every single snap where he is on the field.
Auburn and Oregon are scheduled to meet Saturday night at 6:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
