Another Auburn defensive lineman down for the spring with injury


Already missing a pair of defensive lineman for all of spring practice due to injuries, Auburn has taken yet another hit to that unit.

Following the first workout in pads Monday, head coach Gene Chizik confirmed that defensive tackle Gabe Wright will miss the remainder of the spring sessions.  The unspecified injury occurred during Saturday’s session.

The good news, at least for now, is that the injury is not expected to impact the defensive tackle’s availability for the start of summer camp in a few months, Chizik said.

Wright joins fellow lineman Nosa Eguae and Ken Carter, who will not participate at all during the spring due to their respective injuries.

As a true freshman in 2011, Wright was credited with three sacks and one tackle for loss in the 13 games he played.
