AUBURN, Ala. — Gus Malzahn downplayed the severity of undisclosed injuries that kept true freshman linebacker T.D. Moultry and junior defensive tackle Andrew Williams away from Auburn football’s first full-contact fall camp practice Saturday.
Malzahn said both Moultry and Williams were “a little dinged up.” He expects both of them to return soon. The Tigers will hold their first scrimmage of fall camp Monday afternoon inside Jordan-Hare Stadium.
“We expect (Moultry) back,” Malzahn said Saturday. “Nothing serious. … (Williams) got a little dinged up, Fall camp, that’s part of it. Nothing serious.”
PRACTICE REPORT: Tigers go full pads, true freshman not dressed out on Day 5
Moultry was not dressed out Saturday afternoon as he observed practice on the sidelines. Williams was fully dressed out, but he was moving slowly between practice areas with a brace on his right knee. He didn’t participate in defensive line drills during the media’s viewing window.
Williams is expected to contribute as a reserve defensive tackle in 2017 behind projected starters Dontavius Russell and Derrick Brown. Moultry entered fall camp with plans to work both at outside linebacker and designated pass rusher.
