Auburn Tigers

Some gut-wrenching news for Auburn football.

The Tigers leading rusher, JaTarvious "Boobee" Whitlow will miss the next four to six weeks due to a knee injury.

Head coach Gus Malzahn told the media today that the sophomore running back hurt his left knee during the Tiger's 24-13 loss to Florida last weekend and had surgery today.

Malzahn said Whitlow’s injury will be a big loss but he remains optimistic.

Whitlow is second in the SEC in rushing yards with 544 rushing yards on 110 carries through six games.

He also leads the league with seven rushing touchdowns on the year.
