Phillips, Rose return

Auburn coach Gene Chizik said following Wednesday night’s practice that fullback Ladarious Phillips and defensive back Jonathan Rose have been reinstated to the football team.

“They’ll both be available to play Saturday,” Chizik said.

Both players were suspended last week for an undisclosed violation of team rules and did not participate in the Tigers’ 38-24 loss to Clemson.

Chizik was asked if he expected both to play Saturday against Florida Atlantic.

“You know we’re going to end up playing a lot of young people,” he said. “Again, we’re preparing for those guys to to have an opportunity and be available to do that, as well as a lot of our young guys.”
