Queen, a redshirt freshman, sat out of Auburn’s spring game due to a separated right shoulder injury. The surgery will reportedly be done by Dr. James Andrews and a full recovery is expected. He should also be expected to be available for the Tiger sin the fall if needed. This will be the second time Queen has gone through surgery. Last September Queen underwent surgery for an elbow injury, which was to limit his activity in the spring. Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said in the spring he expected Queen to be fine in the long term, which still appears to be the case.
Queen is not expected to play a pivotal role in Auburn’s offense this season anyway, so he will be given plenty of time to get back in playing shape with his shoulder. Listed as a fourth-striong quarterback, he would likely only be needed in the case of an emergency for Auburn in 2016. Jeremy Johnson, Sean White and John Franklin III are all considered in the running for the starting job to run Auburn’s offense this fall.
