Auburn wide receiver D’haquille Williams remains suspended, head coach Gus Malzahn said on Monday.

Williams, a senior, missed his third consecutive day of practice on Monday. He was also absent for the Tigers’s fan day on Sunday.

“I’ll tell you when he gets back,” Malzahn told reporters while declining to answer questions on Williams’s status.

A preseason All-SEC pick at receiver, Williams has been suspended for an undisclosed disciplinarily issue. He also missed last season’s Outback Bowl against Wisconsin, a 34–31 Badgers win.

Despite missing three games, Williams led Auburn last season with 45 receptions and 730 yards, adding five touchdowns. He had four hundred-yard games against Arkansas, Kansas State, Mississippi State and Alabama, the last game of the season he appeared in.

Williams enrolled at Auburn in January 2014 after transferring from junior college at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College.

Auburn finished 8–5 last season and 4–4 in SEC play, tied for fourth in the SEC West.
