Auburn QB Marshall 'should be OK' to play
Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee says quarterback Nick Marshall "should be OK" for the Arkansas game.
AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee says quarterback Nick Marshall "should be OK" for the Arkansas game.
Lashlee says Marshall participated in Sunday's brief practice but his right, throwing shoulder was sore.
Freshman Jeremy Johnson took over after Marshall hurt his shoulder early in Saturday night's 45-10 victory over Florida Atlantic. He didn't return to the game.
Marshall completed his only passing attempt. Lashlee said Sunday that the Tigers have confidence in both players.
Johnson finished 10-of-16 passing for 192 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. He started the Western Carolina game while Marshall recovered from a knee injury.
Lashlee says he's "extremely confident" Johnson would be able to handle the road environment.
