AUBURN, Ala. — Elijah Daniel didn't take part in Auburn's practice Tuesday.
During the open viewing portion for the media, the sophomore defensive end was seen working off to the side in a T-shirt and shorts while the rest of his teammates donned pads. Daniel isn't expected to be gone long, though.
"Yeah, we held him out today, but it's nothing serious," said Auburn coach Gus Malzahn, who didn't specify whether the issue was injury-related. "He'll be back."
Robenson Therezie wasn't 100 percent, but he practiced nonetheless. Auburn's starter at Star wore a protective cast on his left hand. Meeting with reporters following Tuesday's session, Therezie downplayed the injury, describing it as "a little tweak."
The senior said his injury occurred earlier this spring when someone "ran through my fingers.
Missing time never crossed his mind, however.
"It's part of playing Auburn football," he said. "When you jam it you get right back out there."
Meanwhile, Jaylon Denson and Josh Holsey have still yet to participate this spring. The pair is continuing to rehab season-ending knee injuries they both suffered last fall.
