Changing places

I saw true freshman DE Jomarcus Savage walking through the hall today in a sling, meaning Auburn is down to four defensive ends. Though no official statement has been made about Savage's injury, it's clear he won't play in the near future.

Savage had been the fifth DE since Raven Gray is taking a redshirt and A.J. Greene moved to offensive line.

Two players said that DT Zach Clayton, a pass-rush specialist, has moved outside and will play as a pass-rush end in the near future.

Clayton is considered one of the best rushers on Auburn's roster and DTs coach Don Dunn has frequently used him in passing downs.

For more on the move, read tomorrow's Anniston Star.
