Auburn CB Marshall Taylor returning to team this week

The Auburn Tigers have been without graduate transfer cornerback Marshall Taylor the last two weeks after he was strangely injured at a party with former running back Jovon Robinson. However, he seems to be healthy and he will return to the team sometime this week.

Head coach Gus Malzahn spoke with James Crepea of after Monday’s practice and he said Taylor, who has missed the first 14 of the team’s fall practices, should be on the field this week.

He will hopefully be out there this week,” Malzahn said.

Taylor transferred in from Miami-Ohio this offseason and is expected to compete for a starting job in the Auburn secondary. He played three years with the RedHawks and recorded 109 tackles and three interceptions in 32 career games.

He played the biggest role for the team in 2015 when he recorded 39 tackles and two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown.
