Auburn Tigers quarterback Nick Marshall is not healthy enough to start the team's next game against Western Carolina, which will thrust Jeremy Johnson under center on Saturday at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
Head coach Gus Malzahn took to Twitter to break the news himself on Friday evening:
Nick Marshall is not 100 percent so we are going with Jeremy Johnson at QB tomorrow. Have a lot of confidence in him and he is well prepared— Coach Gus Malzahn (@CoachGusMalzahn) October 11, 2013
Marshall will start vs. Texas A&M.
