Video: Sean White wasn't forthcoming on discomfort in UGA game
Auburn’s defense did its job, but the Tigers fell to Georgia 13-7 on Saturday in Athens.
Much of the post-game discussion has centered around a season-low output from the offense. White has been dealing with a shoulder injury, and at Sunday’s media opportunity, the quarterback said he hasn’t been upfront about how much his shoulder has been bothering him. He’s not using the shoulder as an excuse for the loss, however:
Sean White says he hasn't thrown in practice in two weeks and his sore shoulder affected passes against Georgia. 'But that's not an excuse'

Despite White’s struggles (6-of-20, 27 yards, INT), offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee did not consider making a change:
Auburn's Rhett Lashlee said Sunday there was no consideration to replacing Sean White against Georgia. "Sean gave us the best chance to win"
