Bo Nix reportedly out for this week's South Carolina game; TJ Finley to start
Bo Nix suffered a serious injury on Saturday against Mississippi State, according to a report that said he will not play this week against South Carolina.
The Auburn quarterback was 27-for-41 passing on Saturday in the 43-34 loss with 2 touchdowns. It is not immediately clear how long Nix may be out, but the Tigers face Alabama next week.
TJ Finley will reportedly replace Nix for the game against the Gamecocks after he did in the third quarter against Mississippi State following a long pass to Ja’Varrius Johnson.
A source close to the Nix family confirmed to me that Bo Nix broke his ankle against Mississippi State last night.
It appears Auburn will come to Williams-Brice next week without it’s starting QB. Expect TJ Finley to be under center for the Tigers against the Gamecocks
