Auburn football: J.B. Grimes 'trying to stay two steps ahead' of injuries

AUBURN, Ala. — In the wake of Alex Kozan's season-ending back injury, the Tigers had to shuffle things around on its offensive line. Chad Slade flipped from right guard to left guard. Avery Young took Slade's spot at right guard, moving from right tackle. Ad that led to Patrick Miller reclaiming the right tackle spot, where he started the first five games last season.
