After missing Auburn’s unexpected recent run toward the Top 10, Patrick Miller‘s status for upcoming games remains a mystery.
The right tackle has missed the past two games with what’s only been described as “off-field issues.” When asked about Miller’s status for this weekend’s game against FAU, head coach Gus Malzahn said, “not sure yet.”
Just what the issue or issues are that’s keeping Miller off the field has not yet been detailed.
Miller started the first five games of the season before missing wins over Western Carolina and Texas A&M. Avery Young has started in place of Miller each of the past two games despite an injury incurred in his first start.
“Avery was a guy that banged his ankle up against Western Carolina,” Malzahn said. “We were worried about him being ready and he wasn’t quite 100 percent but he played with a lot of guts. We ran behind him in the fourth quarter a lot. He did an excellent job.”
