Gus Malzahn shares latest Auburn injury update looking ahead to trip to Texas A&M
Auburn is rolling right now after getting off to a 3-0 start to the season but the team’s latest win against Kent State came at a cost, as a few of the team’s best players are banged up heading into the start of SEC play.
Looking ahead to the team’s upcoming trip to face off against Texas A&M, Gus Malzahn just shared the latest injury update with his team in anticipation for Tuesday’s practice.
“Prince Tega Wanogho, Derrick Brown, Seth Williams and Shedrick Jackson will all practice in some capacity today. We will see how they are doing,” Malzahn said. “Not ready to say [anything on their status], it’s still day-to-day but they will be out there and we will be evaluating. Derrick Hall, it looks like, he will not be able to play this week at this time. The rest of them, we will see how they do today.”
One player Malzahn did not mention during his injury report was sophomore receiver Anthony Schwartz. Auburn’s coach is hopeful Schwartz continues to progress this week and is holding out hope that the sophomore does not require a club to protect his injured hand.
“There’s going to be some protection, we are hoping it won’t be the club that it was last week, but he did catch a ball with the club, in fact, he made a really good catch,” Malzahn said. “No matter what, we are going to throw it to him.”
Football season is always going to lead to some bumps and bruises, but taking everything into consideration, Auburn looks to be relatively healthy heading into the first true road test of the season.
