AUBURN, Ala. Reporters were permitted to view a little more than 20 minutes of practice on Tuesday, which marked the 10th session of the spring for Auburn. Here are a few thoughts and observations from the open portion of practice. (Very, very little to see today.)
- Receiver Ricardo Louis did not participate in any drills Tuesday. Though he was in his jersey, he did not have on his pads or helmet. He didn't have on any brace or cast and wasn't noticeably limping in any way.
- Much like Nero, safety Josh Holsey was in pads but remained on the sideline with a brace on his right knee. Holsey is continuing to recover from a season-ending knee injury suffered in October.
- Once the starter at right guard, Chad Slade was seen working with the second-team offensive line at left guard. The first-team offensive line consisted of left tackle Shon Coleman, left guard Alex Kozan, center Reese Dismukes, right guard Avery Young and right tackle Patrick Miller.
- Defensive lineman Tyler Nero was dressed out but didn't take part in practice. A third-year sophomore, he was taken to the hospital during the team's practice on March 27, but returned to watch the Tigers' scrimmage two days later.
- The same two players as last week were back at punt returner: Star Robenson Therezie and receiver Marcus Davis.
