The college football season finally returns this weekend with every SEC program scheduled to take the field against a non-conference opponent. While the offseason was kind to most of the players across the league, several key members of nearly every SEC program will miss the opening weekend of action.

Interestingly enough, Auburn is the only SEC team that appears poised to enter the season without a player suspended or declared out for the opener due to injury. While starting defensive lineman Marlon Davidson will be limited after sustaining an injury in fall camp, he is expected to play against Georgia Southern, according to his coach Gus Malzahn.

Outside of Auburn, here is one key player every SEC program will likely be without this weekend:

Alabama – starting defensive lineman Raekwon Davis (gunshot wound)

Arkansas – starting receiver Jared Cornelius (injury)

Florida – starting receiver Antonio Callaway (suspension)

Georgia – starting cornerback Malkom Parrish (injury)

Kentucky – starting receiver Dorian Baker (injury)

LSU – starting outside linebacker/defensive end Arden Key (injury?)

Mississippi – starting tight end Dawson Knox (injury)

Mississippi State – potential starting defensive lineman Chauncey Rivers (NCAA clearing house)

Missouri – potential starter at cornerback Christian Holmes (injury)

South Carolina – backup receiver Randrecous Davis (injury)

Tennessee – starting middle linebacker Darrin Kirkland Jr. (injury)

Texas A&M – starting cornerback Nick Harvey (injury)

Vanderbilt – starting fullback Bailey McElwain (injury)
