Auburn Football holds 2-hours practice Monday

The Auburn Tigers held a two-hour practice in shells Monday afternoon at the Auburn Athletics Complex practice fields, their fourth practice of the preseason. After practice, defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson and offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee assessed the progress so far. 

"You can tell there's a great carryover from the two older guys (at quarterback) in the spring and the two new guys are very eager. They're getting better each day," said Lashlee about the quarterbacks in camp. "I'll tell you one thing, our defense is flying around and I think that's really encouraging to the quarterbacks."  

"We've overloaded our kids a bit, but they are working at it," said Johnson about the Auburn defensive unit. "What we did this spring, they've retained pretty well."

The Tigers return to the practice field Tuesday afternoon for their first workout in full pads of the preseason. Auburn's season opener is Saturday, August 31, at Jordan-Hare Stadium versus Washington State in a 6 p.m. Central kickoff.
