Auburn senior WR Tony Stevens has accepted an invitation to the East-West Shrine Game.

Stevens leads Auburn's receiving corp in both yardage and touchdowns. All relative, though, all relative. Playing in a passing offense that rarely rises above serviceable, the 6-foot-4, 212-pound senior has caught 29 passes for 466 yards and three touchdowns in eight games. An undisclosed injury knocked him out of commission for several contests.

Auburn senior DL Montravius Adams accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Heading into the postseason, Adams has a career-high 8.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks. The All-SEC performer also has an interception and two blocked kicks. We like the 6-foot-3, 281-pound Adams' movement skills for his size.

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 RB Kamryn Pettway (leg) rushed for 17 yards on 12 carries in Saturday's 30-12 loss to Alabama.

We really didn't even need to tell you who won, here. Instead, we could have just told you that Auburn rushed for 66 yards as a team and you would know all the same. Alabama's defense simply doesn't allow other teams to run. Period. It didn't help that Pettway has been dealing with a leg injury of late, one which had forced him to sit out two straight games. This recent three-game stretch of injury and Alabama has been disappointing, but Pettway had surpassed 120 yards rushing in six of his seven other games played prior to dropping off the map for most of November.

Auburn senior QB Jeremy Johnson will start in place of the injured Sean White in Saturday's Iron Bowl clash with Alabama.

This makes two consecutive starts for Johnson, as White has been limited of late by a shoulder injury initially suffered against Ole Miss on October 29. Against Alabama A&M last weekend, Johnson completed 19-of-14 passes for 147 yards and a touchdown while rushing for two additional scores. As if it needs to be said, Alabama proper offers a quantum leap in terms of competition.

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 RB Kamryn Pettway (leg) is expected to play in the Iron Bowl on Saturday.

Pettway backfield friend Kerryon Johnson said that Pettway is "ready to go," while HC Gus Malzahn (more of an authority on these matters) has confirmed that the 6-foot, 242-pound redshirt sophomore will do his best to drill through the brick wall that is Alabama's run defense on Saturday. Entering the practice week, Pettway had missed two consecutive contests (against Georgia and Alabama A&M). In just seven games this season, he has rushed for 1,106 yards (6.4 YPC) and seven touchdowns.

Auburn redshirt junior edge rusher Carl Lawson went through Senior Day activities, meaning he will likely enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

We didn't need Lawson going through Senior Day to know he is destined for the upcoming draft, as Lawson flirted with leaving last year. He battled injuries for the previous two seasons, but when fully healthy Lawson is one of the most complete edge rushers in this class. He can when with power and explosion.

Auburn senior QB Jeremy Johnson will start in place of the injured Sean White in Saturday's showdown with Alabama A&M.

White will sit out with a shoulder injury. While the choice of Johnson over John Franklin III might seem outwardly odd -- he has attempted all of six passes this season -- HC Gus Malzahn indicated that the start was somewhat symbolic for Johnson in his final season of collegiate ball. "Jeremy Johnson's going to start us out on Senior Day," Malzahn said. "I know our team's excited for him. He's excited... I'm excited for him. John Franklin will get a chance to do things too, but we're very excited for Jeremy. He'll be ready to go."

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.

ESPN's Derek Tyson reports that Auburn sophomore DE Byron Cowart will miss the remainder of the regular season following the removal of his appendix.

Cowart will sit out games against Alabama A&M and Alabama over these next two weekends as he recovers from the surgical procedure. Whether the 6-foot-3, 252-pound sophomore will be able to make it back for bowl action has yet to be determined. Cowart had one small moment of infamy over the summer, when he was arrested for marijuana possession in May. No suspension came out of that arrest for ESPN 300's No. 1 prospect in the 2015 class. In four games played this season, Cowart had recorded six tackles while forcing one fumble.

Should Auburn redshirt junior edge rusher Carl Lawson record 2.5 sacks before the close of the season, he will set the single-season school record.

Lawson is closing in on Nick Fairley's record of 11.5 sacks. The 6-foot-2, 261-pounder is currently sitting on 9.5 sacks. "Carl has been one of our top players," said HC Gus Malzahn on Tuesday, "one of the best players in college football and he stayed healthy this year and has just been a big-time impact player. So, it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he accomplishes that [sack record]." For the season as a whole, Lawson has recorded 25 tackles (13.0 for loss), the aforementioned 9.5 sacks and a forced fumble over 10 games played. Lawson will have contests against Alabama A&M, Alabama and yet-to-be-determined bowl game to notch those 2.5 sacks to jump him over Fairley.

Auburn HC Gus Malzahn indicated that he is not ready to name a starter should redshirt sophomore QB Sean White (shoulder) be unable to play against Alabama A&M on Saturday.

White re-injured his already balky shoulder during Saturday's loss to Georgia. While John Franklin III has been taking the second-team snaps of late and would appear the likely starting option if White can't go, Malzahn wouldn't commit to trotting him out there this coming weekend, saying merely that the decision between Franklin and Jeremy Johnson would be made later in the week. Franklin has appeared in all 10 games this season, Johnson just two. Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee (perhaps being a little diplomatic) said that he would feel comfortable with either Franklin or Johnson on Saturday if White can't play.

Auburn senior WR Marcus Davis (shoulder) has been ruled out for the final two games of the 2016 regular season.

Davis will sit out against Alabama A&M and actual Alabama these next two weekends. "He's one of our leaders. He's a super human being. Great character," said HC Gus Malzahn. "That's a tough blow. That's a really tough blow." This season, the 5-foot-9, 180-pound senior has caught 17 passes for 160 yards over the course of 10 games. The hope here is that Davis will be able to return for Auburn's yet-to-be-announced postseason bowl berth.

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.
