Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that junior DE Paul James III "could be out for the season" due to a knee injury.

James suffered the knee injury in practice last week, with Malzahn explaining that "[i]t was kind of a freak drill." In his three healthy games this season, the 6-foot-4, 255-pounder had registered three tackles and a pass breakup. A JUCO transfer, James enrolled at Auburn in January. He ranked as 247 Sports' composite's No. 17 JUCO prospect for 2016.

Auburn redshirt junior edge rusher produced five quarterback hurries and a sack in the school's win over LSU.

LSU was in position to convert a game winning score with the ball on the 14-yard line on 2nd & 10. Lawson had a different plan, bringing down the opposing quarterback for a six yard sack. If you've followed this site for any amount of time, you know we are big fans of Lawson's game. The NFL will be too, if the medicals check out.

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn told reporters OC Rhett Lashlee will call plays for the remainder of the season.

Malzahn served as the playcaller in Auburn's two losses to Clemson and Texas A&M, obviously difficult teams, but the victory over LSU pointed to Malzahn sticking with Lashlee. This isn't the first time Malzahn gave Lashlee this responsibility, making the same decision last season before taking it back in the offseason. Auburn faces ULM and Arkansas over the next few weeks.

Auburn sophomore RB Kerryon Johnson rushed for 93 yards on 22 carries in Saturday's 18-13 win over LSU.

In a game that really, really, really lacked offense, Johnson proved to be the most impactful player on that side of the ball for either team. He led Auburn in both rushing and receiving in the win. In addition to his 93 yards on the ground, the 6-foot, 195-pounder logged 68 yards on four catches. Through four games, Johnson has tallied 371 yards rushing and scored a quartet of touchdowns.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn said that redshirt sophomore QB Sean White will start against LSU on Saturday.

Malzahn wouldn't commit to White as the starter after Saturday's loss to Texas A&M. He has decided to stand by his man for the time being, saying, "We feel like he gives us the best chance to win." The 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt sophomore has passed for fewer than 150 yards in two of three games. All three of his touchdown passes came in a Week 2 win over Arkansas State. There is no fantasy intrigue for Saturday, particularly against a staunch LSU defense.

Auburn five-star 2017 verbal T commit Calvin Ashley is locking down plans for four of his five official visits.

Ashley hasn't set any dates as of yet, but specifically mentioned potential officials to Cal, USC, Florida and Auburn (naturally). His fifth and final school remains up in the air, but Maryland is one possibility. While the 6-foot-7, 330-pounder is making use of his allotted official visits, he has insisted for some time that he remains solid in his Auburn commitment. "It’s still strong, it’s all still the same," he said. Ashley ranks as Rivals' No. 59 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle.

Should Auburn choose to fire HC Gus Malzahn at the end of the season, they would owe him an estimated $8.95 million.

Malzahn signed a one-year extension over the offseason and his contract now extends through the 2020 season. Should Auburn opt to jettison Malzahn's staff, too, the bill would rise to a hefty approximate number of $13.79 million. In losses to Clemson and Texas A&M this season, the Tigers have managed to score just 29 points. They face LSU on Saturday as they attempt to dig out of their early 1-2 hole.
Sep 19 - 2:22 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway rushed for 123 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Saturday's 29-16 loss to Texas A&M.

Pettway did not log any statistical production in the Tigers' season-opening loss to Clemson, but he has exploded over the last two games. The 6-foot, 242-pounder racked up 152 yards rushing against Jacksonville State last weekend, then came back with Saturday's 123 on the ground while facing a far, far tougher defense. He is worth a flier in deeper formats, though it should be remembered that Kerryon Johnson remains the team's starting back.

Former Auburn freshman TE Landon Rice has been accused of first-degree rape.

The alleged encounter occurred in a dormitory on April 12, with the unidentified victim filing a report on July 27. Rice left the football team in early September. At the time, HC Gus Malzahn said that the 6-foot-5, 250-pounder was exiting stage left for "personal reasons." The woman in question filed a protective order against Rice on September 12. It should be noted that the tight end has not been charged with a crime and that the case is listed as inactive by the Auburn Police Department.

Auburn senior ILB T.J. Neal was benched for Saturday's game against Arkansas State.

It was a coach's decision after Neal took to Twitter and ranted about his playing time in the school's season opening loss to Clemson. He later deleted the tweets, calling them selfish and apologized. Neal was a graduate transfer who formerly played at Illinois.

Auburn sophomore RB Kerryon Johnson rushed 18 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns against Arkansas State on Saturday.

Another promising outing for Johnson and his fantasy owners, but Kamryn Pettway's emergence is something to monitor. After Pettway played sparingly in the opener, HC Gus Malzahn promised he'd be more involved this week. That was indeed the case, as Pettway had 15 carries for a team-high 152 yards against the Red Wolves. Johnson is still the No. 1 back going forward, but he's going to bleed carries.
Sep 11 - 12:53 PM

Auburn redshirt sophomore QB Sean White completed 17-of-23 passes for 244 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 51-14 win over Arkansas State.

In a moment of inspired madness, Auburn HC Gus Malzahn played just one quarterback against Arkansas State. A sharp contrast to the "playing three of them" strategy implemented in last weekend's loss to Clemson. White responded well enough, throwing two touchdown passes in the second quarter and wrapping up with one more in the third quarter. Up next on the docket, a home showdown with Texas A&M. The 6-foot, 200-pound White holds little fantasy value at this juncture.

Auburn freshman TE Landon Rice has left the football team and his return "is unlikely."

Rice participated in spring activities but "has not been seen" since last week. He was working as the school's second team H-back behind a sophomore, so it might have been some time before Rice saw the field. It is uncommon for an early enrollee to leave a team this early.
Sep 10 - 9:38 AM

Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn says redshirt sophomore RB Kamryn Pettway will play a bigger role in Week 2 against Arkansas State.

"Kam Pettway will have more of a role this game," Malzahn said. "The good thing is we learned a lot about (starting running back Kerryon Johnson). I think the question that y’all ask quite a bit was can he hold up, can he be durable and all that? … He protected the football, so I was very encouraged by him, and Pettway will have a bigger role this game." Pettway only played a few snaps against No. 2 Clemson on Saturday night. He can play either running back or H-back.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn indicated that junior QB John Franklin III is the firm No. 2 quarterback behind redshirt sophomore QB Sean White.

Malzahn says White will start moving forward, but reading between the lines you can expect Franklin to be used regularly in sub-packages. In Saturday's loss to Clemson, Franklin was only used on one play, a completion for negative yardage. Senior Jeremy Johnson played more, but Johnson appears to have exhausted his last chance via an ineffective night that included an interception and a fumble on only six attempts. "A little unknown right there, throwing a lot at the opponent," Malzahn said of the three-QB rotation. "We're moving forward with Sean White and bringing along John Franklin."
