AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee provided no update in regards to the Tigers' quarterback strategy for the season opener following Sunday's practice. With Nick Marshall not starting following his offseason marijuana citation, Jeremy Johnson is expected to be in the lineup when Auburn's offense hits the field for the first time this season.
Marshall is expected to enter the game at some point, though.
Regardless of how it shakes out, Lashlee had confidence both signal-callers would handle the situation with no issue.
"My guys know what to expect. They know what's going to happen," he said. "Coach (Gus Malzahn) will address all kind of depth chart issues on Tuesday and I feel really good about Jeremy and where he's at. I feel really good about where Nick and where he's at. I feel really good about where our team is that. They believe in both those guys and there's no uncertainty on our team at all."
That's why Lashlee has told both of them they have to be "ready to go" come Saturday afternoon.
"Don’t worry about how long this or that," he said. " ... I feel really good about the way both Nick and Jeremy have practiced the last week. Today is no different.”
