Auburn is rolling against FAU tonight, but not without incident. Quarterback Nick Marshall, who previously missed the Tigers' Oct. 12 game against Western Carolina with a knee injury, sustained what appeared be a shoulder injury on Saturday night. He was later taken to the locker room. Auburn has a pretty solid backup in freshman Jeremy Johnson. The former four-star recruit went 17-of-21 for 201 yards with four touchdowns against the Catamounts, and he threw a touchdown on his first attempt after coming in to relieve Marshall. Marshall is likely out for the game; the Tigers will likely opt to play it safe in a game that is already close to being out of hand.
