Auburn football: Medical redshirt a possibility for weakside linebacker Justin Garrett

AUBURN, Ala. — It might end up being a lost season for Justin Garrett. The junior was the Defensive MVP of Auburn’s spring game and was expected to be one of the team’s standout defenders this fall at the “Star,” the Tigers’ hybrid linebacker/safety position. However, Garrett missed the first two games of the season with a sprained foot before returning to play against Mississippi State and LSU, respectively. As quickly as he came back, Garrett was sidelined once more after suffering another foot injury.
