Auburn football spring practice observations: Injury updates on Day 6

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn football released a video Tuesday showing senior wide receiver Ryan Davis practicing in the Tigers’ return from spring break. Two days later, he was absent.

Davis was not present during Auburn’s open viewing window Thursday afternoon, which started the sixth day of spring practice. Recently injured junior receiver Eli Stove, however, was — in a scooter following his ACL tear and surgery.

Davis and Stove’s absences created some shakeups when Auburn’s offense went into its pace drill on Thursday. The Tigers rotated a few experienced players out of the two-deep drills, including H-back  Chandler Cox and defensive end  T.D. Moultry.

Senior wide receiver  Will Hastings and sophomore defensive back  Jordyn Peters were both fully participating in drills. Hastings was in a non-contact jersey before spring break, while Peters suffered an apparent knee injury two weeks earlier.

SEC Country will have observations, photos and video from practice on this page throughout Thursday evening. For now, here is how Auburn lined up in the pace drill.
