MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Auburn cornerback Carlton Davis’ finger injury is not severe and he is expected to make a full recovery after missing the Tigers’ spring game in early April.
The All-SEC freshman from last season did not play in the A-Day game with what coaches termed a finger injury. Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele further clarified the injury Wednesday before a speaking engagement at the Montgomery Quarterback Club.
“Carlton had a really good spring,” Steele said. “His skill set is high level and he improved daily. He probably, if it had been a game, could have played, but it was not something … [there was] no sense on doing surgery on a finger just because of a spring game.”
The rising sophomore is projected to be a starter in 2016.
