The Tigers have been ravaged by injuries, with 14 players — not including quarterback Sean White, who is questionable — having already been declared out against Alabama A&M this week.
When you add the projected redshirts and former walk-ons who have earned scholarships, that’s more than 25 percent of the roster gone in the final stage of the season.
Auburn has 14 players out this week, not including Sean White. Add in redshirts, former walk-ons on scholarship & that's over 25% of roster.

That could help explains Auburn’s late-season slide. The Tigers barely edged four-win Vanderbilt at home before losing at Georgia 13-7 last Saturday.
The absence of star running back Kamryn Pettway coupled with White’s injury were what many believed doomed Auburn in Athens. But after a closer look, it’s clear the entire roster is hurting right now.
