Gus Malzahn shares the latest Auburn injury update heading into team's trip to South Carolina
Auburn escaped with a win over Arkansas on Saturday and is looking ahead to a game at South Carolina.
Head coach Gus Malzahn gave an injury update on his team in his media availability on Tuesday and appears to be fairly pleased with the depth Auburn has at this stage in the season.
“We had a Sunday practice geared towards our young guys, and we’ll have our main base down practice day today and we are hopeful that we have everyone out there, other than K.J. Britt to be in some sort of practice mode today,” said Malzahn. “We will see how that goes after today and tomorrow.”
The Tigers received good news, as it appears the Week 1 SEC Freshman of the Week, defensive back Jaylin Simpson will return for the matchup with the Gamecocks.
“We are getting (Jaylin) Simpson back, which I expect him to practice today,” continued Malzahn.
“Jordyn Peters got knocked out of the (Arkansas) game early too so that was an issue. We’ll see. We have our guys healthy; we do feel that we have quality depth. We need to disrupt the quarterback more, that will help them with that too, but hopefully, we’ll get our guys back healthy this week.”
Auburn and South Carolina kick off at noon EDT on Saturday in Columbia.
