Auburn football practice report: How healthy is Auburn heading into Texas A&M?

Auburn received a major blow Monday when head coach Hugh Freeze announced staring cornerback Keionte Scott will miss considerable time following surgery for an apparent right ankle injury.

His injury left Auburn’s secondary without two starters including Scott and Nehemiah Pritchett as well as Donovan Kaufman, who had played exceptionally well in Auburn’s first two games.

Scott joins starting linebacker Austin Keys as players dealing with long-term recoveries, but in a practice period open to reporters Tuesday before Auburn’s trip to Texas A&M, most of the remaining names on Auburn’s injury report were able to participate in practice.

Scott and Keys were the only non-participants in practice, as expected. Scott was seen in the football facility Tuesday with a boot on his right foot and wheeling around with his leg propped up on a scooter.

Cornerback Donovan Kaufman was the only player on Auburn’s injury report with any obvious injury limitation in practice as he wore a yellow non-contact jersey.

He was evaluated for a concussion after the Cal game.

Pritchett, as has been the case ever since practices before the Cal game, was a full participant in practice. He is still yet to play this season.

Offensive linemen Kam Stutts and Izavion Miller, wide receiver Ja’Varrius Johnson, jack linebacker Jalen McLeod and tight end Luke Deal all did not finish Auburn’s game against Samford with various injuries, but all practiced in full.

Running back Jarquez Hunter was shown on the ESPN broadcast at the medical table having his leg worked on, and he too practiced in full Tuesday.
