AUBURN, Ala. — Junior receiver Jaylon Denson was not at Auburn's practice on Tuesday.
Coach Gus Malzahn confirmed Denson's absence but did not offer further detail.
"He’s got something he’s got to take care of," Malzahn said.
Denson missed a majority of the 2013 campaign after suffering a season-ending knee injury against LSU in September. Denson sat out spring practice before being cleared to run routes again in July. He was also limited at times during fall camp as he and the coaching staff continued to monitor his recovery.
"He's not re-injured anything or ever been limited from an injury," offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said earlier this month. "It's just now about us managing him to get him to the first game and then I think as the season goes on, his volume will be able to increase. ... Some we've given him more reps than others, but that's been by our design, not necessarily him because we had to ease him back into that."
Denson, considered the Tigers' best blocking receiver, has yet to figure prominently in the passing game. He has four catches for 57 yards in his three-year career at Auburn.
