The Auburn football team will once again be without running back Kamry Pettway when they take on UCF on Jan. 1 in the Peach Bowl.
On Wednesday, Tigers head coach Gus Malzahn confirmed to Josh Vitale of the Opelika-Auburn News that Pettway will be held out of action again due to the shoulder blade injury that has kept him out of action for Auburn’s last five games.
This season, because of injuries, Pettway was held to just 305 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.
