Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Jarrett Stidham completed 13-of-17 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 35 yards on five attempts in Saturday's 51-14 win over Missouri.

Stidham found Nate Craig-Myers for a 57-yard touchdown in the third quarter to account for his lone score of the game. There was much offseason excitement over the prospect of the redshirt sophomore serving as a turbo-charge for Auburn's offense, but it has yet to come together. Through four games, he has surpassed 220 yards passing just once (that against Mercer last weekend) and owns a mere 3/2 TD/INT ratio. A home date with Mississippi State awaits the Tigers next weekend.

Auburn senior RB Kerryon Johnson (hamstring) rushed for 48 yards and five touchdowns on 18 carries in Saturday's 51-14 win over Missouri.

Johnson -- who had missed the last two games with a hamstring injury -- did little in terms of explosivity with his 18 carries (his long run went for just eight yards), but he at least had a nose for the end zone. To say the least. He would score four of his five touchdowns in the first half to help Auburn race out to a dominating 31-7 advantage through two quarters, then finished off his night with a one-yard touchdown punch about five minutes into the third stanza. His health status is worth watching over the course of the coming practice week, as Johnson has struggled with hamstring injuries throughout his career, injuries which tend to linger.

Auburn redshirt sophomore WR Darius Slayton (undisclosed) is expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against Missouri.

Slayton (6'2/191) was injured in the season-opener against Georgia Southern. He saw a limited number of snaps against Clemson in Week 2 and did not play at all against Mercer this past weekend. Full steam ahead, now, it would appear. In minimal action this year, Slayton has caught three passes for 43 yards.

Auburn redshirt senior G Darius James (neck) participated in practice with contact on Wednesday.

James (6'5/304) was injured during Saturday's win over Mercer after going down while blocking on a running play. He required stabilization of the neck and was eventually carted off the field before being taken to the hospital for observation. As frightening as the moment was on the field, it looks as though he avoided serious injury. His status for this weekend's showdown with Missouri will be determined closer to kickoff. James had started the first three games of the season at right tackle.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that sophomore RB Kameron Martin will see increased carries moving forward.

Martin's usage this season has been an odd one. He saw 14 carries -- and turned them into 136 yards and a touchdown -- against Georgia Southern in the opener, doing fantastic work spelling Kerryon Johnson after Johnson was sidelined with a hamstring injury in the second quarter. In the two games since that big performance, though, Martin has not received a carry. Some of this is due to the return of Kamryn Pettway, who was suspended for the aforementioned opener, but even still, Martin has an upside that should see him receiving high single-digit carries in most games.

Auburn senior RB Kerryon Johnson (hamstring) is expected to be able to play against Missouri on Saturday.

Johnson injured his hamstring in the second quarter of the Tigers' season-opening win over Georgia Southern. He has missed the past two games while rehabbing. Assuming the 6-foot, 195-pounder can play in Saturday's showdown with the opposing species of Tigers, it will be the first time this season that both Johnson and fellow RB Kamryn Pettway will play in a game together. Pettway was suspended for the opener due to a violation of team rules.

Auburn junior WR Ryan Davis was name-checked by HC Gus Malzahn as a possible emergency quarterbacking option.

Auburn's still piecing things together on the depth chart behind Jarrett Stidham following Sean White's dismissal. True frosh Mailk Willis has slotted up to backup. Along with Devin Adams, Davis is one option as the third quarterback. He played the position in high school.

Auburn junior DL Byron Cowart, a former 5-star recruit, will leave the program.

Cowart declared his allegiance to Florida during his recruitment, but after Will Muschamp's firing Cowart switched to Auburn, Muschamp's new defensive coordinator. As we all know, Muschamp only stayed for one season, likely leaving Cowart in a place he didn't want to be. Add on that Cowart never got going on the field (and ran into trouble off of it), and the decision makes sense.

Auburn has dismissed backup redshirt junior QB Sean White following his most recent arrest.

White was just reinstated for Auburn's week three game against Mercer. He was arrested for public intoxication less than 24 hours later. White starter games in his past, but his last few seasons have been rocky. Freshman Malik Willis will not serve as the backup.

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 sophomore QB Jarrett Stidham threw for 364 yards and an interception while completing 32-of-37 passes with an interception in a 24-10 victory over MErcer on Saturday.

Stidham (6'3/214) was awful against Clemson, and while no one will ever confuse Mercer's defense for Clemson's, he did look much more effective on Saturday, as he should have. The one mistake was an interception that lead to a Mercer touchdown to make it 17-10 Auburn early in the fourth. Even with that interception, it'd be fair to label this a bounce back game for Stidham, certainly statistically, anyway.
Sep 16 - 7:20 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway ran for 128 yards and three scores on 34 carries in a 24-10 victory over Mercer on Saturday.

Pettway (6'0/223) wasn't able to make many big plays between the 20s, but the bruising tailback was able to make plays near the goal line to end up with a big Saturday. He opened the scoring with a four-yard TD to make it 7-0 Tigers, and his four-yard blast with 4:50 left in the fourth gave Auburn a 24-10 lead to end the game.
Sep 16 - 7:16 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore WR Kyle Davis exited Saturday's game against Mercer with a right foot injury.

Davis limped off in the second quarter. The extent of this foot injury is unknown. We'll pass along updates as they become available.

Auburn redshirt senior G Darius James was carted off the field in the second quarter of Saturday's game against Mercer.

In a very scary moment, James fell facedown and showed little movement while blocking on a run. After having his neck stabilized, he was carted off the field. Auburn has since passed along that James has full movement and feeling in his extremities. He is currently in the hospital undergoing evaluation.
Sep 16 - 5:18 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore WR Darius Slayton (undisclosed) will not play against Mercer on Saturday.

The Tigers have a number of options at wide receiver and Slayton's loss doesn't figure to take away from their game plan. He's caught three passes for 43 yards this season. Just when Slayton will be able to play again is unclear.
