Auburn notes: Defensive tackle Jeff Whitaker out for season, linebacker Justin Garrett 'week-to-week'

Jeff Whitaker’s season ended before it ever began. Auburn’s senior defensive tackle will redshirt this year due to a right knee injury he suffered prior to the season opener versus Washington State, head coach Gus Malzahn announced Tuesday. The decision to sit out for the remainder of the season was made earlier this week.
