Auburn redshirt junior QB Sean White was arrested for public intoxication early on Sunday morning.

Auburn police arrested White for public intox at 2:45 AM and he was admitted to the Lee County Jail at 3:28 AM. He is currently being held on $500 bond. This comes on top of a two-game suspension for reasons unknown which kept White sidelined until this weekend's game against Mercer. Auburn has yet to issue comment on the redshirt junior's arrest, but another suspension may well be in the offing unless the team decides to handle discipline internally.

Auburn redshirt junior QB Sean White has been suspended until the Tigers' Week 3 match-up against Mercer.

White was one of three Auburn players suspended for Saturday's opener against Georgia Southern (RB Kamryn Pettway and WR Kyle Davis were the other two). Unlike both Pettway and Davis, who will be available for next weekend's showdown with Clemson, White must sit that contest as well before he's allowed to crawl out of HC Gus Malzahn's doghouse. No reason was given for the suspensions.

Auburn OC Chip Lindsey said that he has been "really impressed" by what he's seen out of redshirt junior QB Sean White.

"Sean is really smart. He’s been around and played a lot, for sure. I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Sean. Sean is a guy that I lean on some, too, because he’s played here," Lindsey said. This past season, the redshirt junior threw for 1,679 yards (63.9% completions) while turning in a 9/3 TD/INT ratio in 11 games played. He suffered a broken arm against Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl which required a long recovery, but has moved past that serious injury. While Auburn continues to insist that there is a quarterback competition between White and Baylor transfer QB Jarrett Stidham, the latter should be considered a heavy favorite to ultimately win the job.

Auburn redshirt junior QB Sean White (arm) has been able to take part in 7-on-7 and individual drills this spring.

White continues to recover from the broken arm he sustained in a Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma at the beginning of January. He would seem to be on track for a healthy summer, when he will try to upset Baylor transfer QB Jarrett Stidham for 2017 starting rights. White threw for 1,679 yards (63.9% completions) with a 9/3 TD/INT ratio in 11 games last season.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn indicated that redshirt junior QB Sean White's availability for spring practice remains uncertain due to his recovery from a broken arm.

"Right now, we are hoping he can go some in spring. I'll have more updates when it gets a little closer," Malzahn said. He would not place a concrete timetable on his quarterback's return, which is fair enough at this juncture. White broke his right arm against Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl at the beginning of the month. Expect further updates as to his availability for spring work as that date (February 28) closes in. With Jarrett Stidham transferring over to Auburn, a relatively rapid recovery from this injury would seem crucial to White's chances of sticking in a competition.

According to the father of Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White, the quarterback broke his right arm on the Tigers' first offensive series of the Sugar Bowl.

White appeared to suffer the injury on a brutal hit near the OU goal line in the first half. He actually stayed in the game, but was clearly off -- a broken forearm will do that -- and was taken to the locker room for X-rays midway through the second quarter. He was subsequently replaced on the field by John Franklin III. Oklahoma leads Auburn 14-13 at the half. Expect a more substantive update on White's injury prognosis in the coming days. He won't be reentering this contest.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn says redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) is "ready to go" for the Sugar Bowl versus Oklahoma.

Malzahn reiterated his stance that White will be "close to 100%" by kickoff. "Looked to me like he's 100 percent," Malzahn said. "He's ready to go and did everything the other quarterbacks did and didn't miss a beat while doing it." White missed the final two regular season games due to a shoulder injury. He's completed 65.2 percent passing for 1,644 yards and a 9/3 TD/INT rate.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn believes that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) will be "close to 100%" by the Sugar Bowl.

Malzahn made similar statements at the end of November, a good sign that White remains on track to progress toward starting versus Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl on January 2. The 6-foot, 200-pounder has dealt with a balky wing for much of the second half of the 2016 campaign. Jeremy Johnson started each of Auburn's final two regular-season games in White's place.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn is confident redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) will be healthy enough to start in the Tigers' bowl game.

"He'll be full force and ready to go," Malzahn said. The Tigers (8-4, 5-3 SEC) are in line for a Sugar Bowl berth despite starting 1-2 and then losing two straight SEC games to close out the year. Auburn's four losses were to Clemson, Texas A&M, Georgia and Alabama. With White out, Jeremy Johnson was forced into action in Saturday's loss to the Tide.

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) is questionable for the Iron Bowl.

White did not play against Alabama A&M this past weekend due to a nagging shoulder injury which has bothered him since the end of October. Jeremy Johnson drew the start in his place on Saturday. Expect White's playing status for this weekend's huge showdown with Alabama to clarify as the practice week progresses.

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Alabama A&M.

White has been nursing a shoulder injury over the last two weeks. He sat out the first half against Vanderbilt two weekends ago and while he did manage to play in Saturday's loss to Georgia, White completed just 6-of-20 passes for 27 yards and a pick in that one. He also reaggravated the initial shoulder injury in that contest. The Tigers will roll with Jeremy Johnson in White's place on Saturday. Sitting White was the logical move here given the opponent and the fact that the Iron Bowl looms next weekend.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White re-injured his shoulder in Saturday's loss to Georgia.

"We knew he wasn't 100 percent," Malzahn said, "but it was a close game and he wanted to be in there. He's a tough guy. He's one of our leaders." White completed 6-of-20 passes for only 27 yards and an interception against the Bulldogs on Saturday. His status for this weekend's upcoming game against Alabama A&M has yet to be determined, but Auburn should be able to get away with sitting him in that contest should they so choose, in an attempt to bring him up to health for the Iron Bowl on November 26.

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) struggled mightily in Saturday's 13-7 loss to Georgia, completing 6-of-20 passes for 27 yards and an interception.

Egads. To be at least somewhat fair to White, he didn't play in the first half of last weekend's contest with Vanderbilt due to a shoulder injury, one which continued to nag over the course of the practice week. Still, this was a disastrous showing for an offense that scored a combined 96 points against Ole Miss and Arkansas at the end of October. In the two games since that torrid stretch, the Tigers have scored a combined 30 points.

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) is expected to start against Georgia on Saturday.

White sat out the first half of Saturday's game against Vanderbilt due to a shoulder injury, but entered in the second half, ultimately completing 10-of-13 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown. HC Gus Malzahn admitted on Tuesday that the 6-foot, 200-pounder is not back to 100%. At least at this juncture, that doesn't look like it will keep him out of action on Saturday. Through nine games, White has thrown for 1,617 yards with a 9/2 TD/INT ratio.
