Auburn QB Marshall Out With Shoulder Injury

Oct 26, 2013; Auburn, AL, USA; Auburn Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall (14) is tackled by Florida Atlantic Owls defensive back D

Auburn QB Nick Marshall left the Tigers’ game against Florida Atlantic with an apparent injury to his right (throwing) shoulder.

Marshall suffered the injury while getting sacked. He stayed down on the field at the end of the play and, upon sitting up, was wincing in obvious pain.

After Marshall went into the locker room, there have been no updates about his status. Auburn leads 28-0 early in the second quarter, so there is little reason for Marshall to return if he isn’t 100 percent.

UPDATE: Auburn play-by-play broadcaster Rod Bramblett apparently said on air that Marshall would be OK for next week when the Tigers play Arkansas.

QB2 Jeremy Johnson came off the bench and threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to WR Sammie Coates on the next play.
