The Auburn Tigers missed quarterback Sean White for the final two games of the regular season while he was dealing with an injury. He was replaced by Jeremy Johnson in the second half of the Georgia game on November 14 and has not played since.
White admitted that he felt good enough to go play in the final games of the season, but he had not been producing well enough to keep the job. It looks like the Tigers could be getting him back for the Birmingham Bowl, according to the Montgomery Adviser.
Offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said that White had returned to practice and “looked good” on Thursday.
“It was obvious after the fact,” Lashlee said about White’s lack of mobility. “Sean practiced well on Thursday and for the first time had a pretty good pep in his step.”
On the season, White, a freshman, has thrown for 1,064 yards and a touchdown. The Tigers take on Memphis in the bowl game on December 30 at 12 noon EST on ESPN.
