It appears Kerryon Johnson will play in the SEC Championship Game for Auburn.
The Tigers star RB suffered a shoulder injury in the win over Alabama last weekend. Following the injury, Johnson had been listed as a game-time decision with all eyes on his injury status for the SEC Championship.
He was seen in pads warming up prior to the game, and a picture from Chuck Dunlap indicates that Johnson will in fact start the game for the Tigers.
It remains to be seen if Johnson will be 100% effective in the game, but it is certainly good news that he will at least start for Auburn in the battle against Georgia.
Here is the tweet with the photo from Dunlap of the announcement:
