AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn defensive coordinator Ellis Johnson says linebacker Cassanova McKinzy's status is uncertain for the Western Carolina game.
Johnson said Sunday that McKinzy sustained a stinger or a ``pretty serious neck sprain'' and that the medical staff wanted to evaluate him again after 48 hours. He says McKinzy participated in the Tigers' light, non-contact practice Sunday night but his neck was ``real sore.'' They're off Monday.
McKinzy appeared to collide with Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace and remained down on the field for several minutes after a play against Mississippi. He was placed on a flat board and taken to the hospital, but returned to the sidelines wearing a neck brace and street clothes.
McKinzy is third on the team with 23 tackles.
