Coordinator Rhett Lashlee calls Nick Marshall’s shoulder injury ‘nothing major’


Auburn fans concerned about the health of quarterback Nick Marshall should be relieved to hear that the junior QB practiced with the team on Sunday and, according to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, didn’t seem too hobbled. Marshall went down with a shoulder injury during the second quarter of Auburn’s 45-10 win over the Florida Atlantic Owls this past Saturday and did not return to the game.

Here’s Lashlee on Marshall’s practice performance:

Nick was out there. He was able to do some things. He’s sore, but he’s a tough kid. Everything, from me knowing about him, and what we know so far, tells me he should be okay.

 

He was able to do everything, what we do on a Sunday night. We don’t ever throw that much on a Sunday night. With what we were able to do, he was able to do it without really any issues

 

Every time this year when he’s had a little issue, he’s been tough. Since it’s nothing major, we feel good about where he’s at (AL.com).

Marshall has thrown for 1,148 yards and six touchdowns this season, and he’s second on the team with 81 carries. The Tigers, at 7-1 and second in the SEC West, will go on the road to play the Arkansas Razorbacks this Saturday.
