Gus Malzahn updates Auburn's lengthy off week injury list ahead of Georgia game
Auburn is in the middle of its second off week in about a month as the Tigers gear up for a visit from Georgia next week. Coach Gus Malzahn gave reporters an updated injury report on Wednesday.
Marlon Davidson (back) and Jeremiah Dinson (virus) both practiced the last two days and Malzahn said he expects them to be “full throttle” on Sunday, Tom Green of AL.com reported. Neither played played against Ole Miss.
Both played against LSU. Dinson had a team-high 15 tackles and a forced fumble while Davidson had five. The Ole Miss game was the first game they did not start this season.
Auburn RB Boobee Whitlow is expected to be back “100 percent” after he came back from a knee injury and had three carries for nine yards against LSU. He did not play against Ole Miss.
Long snapper Bill Taylor’s status is to be determined.
In other roster news, Malzahn said he plans to redshirt true freshman Mark-Antony Richards, who injured his leg. Malzahn won’t rule out the running back being available in the bowl game.
