AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn coach Gene Chizik says he hasn’t made a decision on who will start at quarterback against Vanderbilt.
Clint Moseley claimed the job for Saturday’s 41-20 loss at Mississippi. Kiehl Frazier started the first five games but was benched at halftime against Arkansas.
Chizik says the decision could be similar to last week when Auburn announced Friday that Moseley would start. He says Frazier is “not completely healthy right now” but didn’t elaborate.
Moseley completed 11 of 18 passes for 112 yards with an interception.
The Tigers are last in the SEC in total and scoring offense.
Morris’ status unknown for FSU
Stephen Morris has a sprained left ankle, and Miami is preparing for Ryan Williams to be the starting quarterback for Saturday night’s rivalry game against No. 12 Florida State.
X-rays of Morris’ ankle showed no fracture, Miami coach Al Golden said on Sunday. Golden also said it’s not a high ankle sprain, which typically takes several weeks to heal.
Morris was hurt in the fourth quarter of the Hurricanes’ 18-14 loss this weekend to North Carolina. He took an awkward-looking step and twisted his ankle inward, then tumbled to the turf in obvious pain. Morris was helped to the sideline, was treated with ice and soon left the field in a walking boot before undergoing further evaluation.
Notre Dame’s Golson has concussion
Fifth-ranked Notre Dame has used two quarterbacks in almost every game this season. It could be a different duo against BYU on Saturday.
Former Myrtle Beach star Everett Golson sustained a concussion on a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the fourth quarter against Stanford, but Irish coach Brian Kelly thinks the starting quarterback will be able to play against the Cougars. Golson still had some concussion symptoms on Sunday, and will undergo further tests today, Kelly said.
Kelly expects Golson to be cleared to practice by Tuesday. But if he can’t play, the coach said Tommy Rees and Andrew Hendrix could see time.
Injury bug hits Texas
Texas defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat is out for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, and quarterback David Ash’s status is uncertain after X-rays showed his left wrist wasn’t broken.
