Reed out indefinitely with shoulder injury

AUBURN Auburn wide receiver Trovon Reed will be out for an indefinite period of time after suffering a shoulder injury Saturday against Florida Atlantic.

“Trovon will not be playing this week,” Auburn coach Gene Chizik said Tuesday at his weekly press conference. “He’s out. We’re going to obviously monitor him week by week to see where he goes health-wise with his shoulder. But, for this week for sure, he’s out.”

Chizik said freshman Quan Bray would move into Reed’s spot at wide receiver and also take over Reed’s responsibilities on punt returns for Saturday's game at 10th-ranked South Carolina.

“Quan’s going to get more snaps than he’s usually gotten,” Chizik said. “We’ve been bringing Quan along week by week, and now he’s going to assume the same reps that Trovon got.”
