AUBURN, Ala. — On Sunday, quarterback Nick Marshall and cornerback Jonathon Mincy appeared before media members for the first time since Auburn opened fall camp last week.
During their time at the podium, both seniors apologized for their offseason incidents involving marijuana.
"I made a mistake and I'm just trying to gain the trust back from my coaches, my teammates and Auburn's fans," said Marshall, who was cited for marijuana possession of less than an ounce outside Reynolds, Ga., on July 11. "I'm just going to accept my punishment with open hands."
Mincy was similarly contrite.
Never miss a local story.
"I made a mistake, and right now I'm very apologetic to everybody in the Auburn family," said Mincy, who was arrested on second-degree possession of marijuana charges outside Abbeville, Ala., on June 27. "I'm just day in, day out trying to get everybody's respect back."
As part of their punishment, both players will be held out of the starting lineup for Auburn's opener versus Arkansas on Aug. 30.
