Latest Auburn football news
AUBURN, Ala. — Kerryon Johnson can feel that he’s getting healthier.
During a particular Week 5 run where a Mississippi State defender tripped him up, Johnson immediately saw a bright side.
“I wouldn’t have been able to run that far the week before,” he said. “I know week by week it’s just getting better, getting better, getting better. One of these weeks I’ll be healthy and you’ll see what I can really do.”
Auburn can’t wait. The Tigers hope to have all healthy running backs and taking the field sooner rather than later. And though Gus Malzahn wants to be “very smart” with his injured rushers, the head coach indicated he has no plans to rest Johnson and junior Kamryn Pettway in the coming weeks.
“We’ll see where we’re at as he gets closer to the game,” Malzahn said of Pettway, who has been dealing with plantar facitis. “At the same time, Kam Martin was banged up going into the last game, too. We were able to rest him. I think that’s good. But I really expect all the guys to be ready to play. It’s just a matter of how healthy we can get them before the game starts.”
Johnson had racked up 517 total yards through five games last season. So far this season he has 300 yards after missing games against Clemson and Mercer. He’s hoping to progress in the approaching stretch of conference play.
“I’m getting back to the 90-, 95-percent range,” Johnson said. “Practice today, Tuesday is the hard day, so this will be the telling day. But I’m feeling really good.”
There’s obvious frustration after Auburn’s 2016 season took a turn for the worst largely because of injuries that occurred on the offensive side of the ball. Pettway voiced hopes of breaking single-season school rushing records during preseason camp. Instead of wowing he’s totaled 208 rushing yards in three games after 1,224 in 10 last season.
“Any time you come off the kind of season he did last year with those yards he put up, he comes into the season banged up here, obviously it’s frustrating,” Johnson said. “He hasn’t been 100 percent any of the games yet. I know that’s been frustrating for him. But we’ve got to get him healthy. If we get him healthy, I think he’ll be in a good spot.”
All Johnson and Pettway can really do is “play our hardest every Saturday” and then spend time in the athletic training room. Johnson says he undergoes treatment — that process usually entails loads of ice, stretching and “a lot of different exercises” — three times a day.
“So you just go whenever you can, basically,” Johnson said. “They make sure they get you over here and they make sure that you go. They definitely check up on it. They want you to be healthy, and that’s on us. We’re scholarship athletes here. We should be playing every Saturday, and treatment helps us do that.”
