Kamryn Pettway did not make Peach Bowl trip, reportedly 'no longer welcome' at Auburn
It is being reported that Auburn RB Kamryn Pettway is no longer welcome to any team activities and did not travel with the team to the Peach Bowl.
It is an interesting turn for Pettway who has missed much of this season as he battled injuries. It was also reported that Pettway is still officially on the roster, but he is not expected to return to the team.
Pettway did have 305 yards rushing this season with 7 TDs, but he was only able to appear in five games. The Tigers were hoping for a solid RB tandem between Pettway and Kerryon Johnson after Pettway rushed for 1,224 yards last season. However, injuries forced Johnson to carry the majority of the load for the Tigers backfield.
