Auburn WR sidelined for tonight's showdown with LSU, per report
Auburn has a huge game on tap tonight at home against LSU.
Tigers coach Bryan Harsin is firmly on the hot seat on The Pains and could use a big win over an LSU squad that has improved with each passing week.
Auburn, per reports, will be without junior wide receiver Malcolm Johnson Jr. tonight.
The 6-1, 195-pounder has a left foot injury.
Auburn WR Malcolm Johnson Jr. has a boot on his left foot and will not be available to play tonight.

Johnson Jr. missed Auburn’s game with San Jose State earlier this season before returning to catch 2 passes for 28 yards against Penn State a week later.
Those are his only receptions on the season but it was hoped that Johnson would be a bigger part of the offense in 2022 after he caught 6 passes for 82 yards and touchdown a year ago.
Tonight’s matchup between the Tigers is set for 7 p.m. (ET) and will be televised by ESPN.
