Nick Marshall injury: Auburn QB 'should be OK'

Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Good news for the Tigers, as the injury to their quarterback does not appear to be serious.

Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall's shoulder injury appears to not be a big deal, as offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said he "should be OK' to play this week against Arkansas.

Marshall suffered what appeared to be a right shoulder injury during the Tigers' 45-10 win over Florida Atlantic, and was taken to the locker room. He did not return to the game, but the school clarified at the time that it was for precautionary reasons.

Auburn is currently ranked No. 11 in the latest BCS standings, and is expected to have no trouble at all against lowly Arkansas, with or without Marshall. The junior has passed for six touchdowns and run for five more, while putting together 1,609 yards of total offense so far this season.

Marshall's backup is highly touted true freshman Jeremy Johnson, who has also thrown for six touchdowns this year.
