AUBURN, Ala. (AP)-Auburn tailback Brad Lester has returned to practice but his status remains uncertain for Saturday's game with No. 6 LSU.
Lester was held out of contact drills in Tuesday's practice for 10th-ranked Auburn with a sprained neck sustained against Mississippi State.
Coach Tommy Tuberville said Lester has a long way to go before Thursday's practice and has to be able to have contact before he's allowed to play.
Tuberville said MRIs have found no damage, and that a Birmingham neurosurgeon left it up to Lester whether he plays or not.
Lester is Auburn's No. 2 rusher with 148 yards but has started the first three games.
