Auburn WR D'haquille Williams dresses out for Wednesday practice

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn receiver D'haquille Williams dressed out for Wednesday's practice, the first time he's been back on the field since injuring his right knee two weeks ago.

Williams went down in the second quarter of Auburn's home loss to Texas A&M on Nov. 8. The Tigers decided to be cautious while Williams worked his way back to health, as he didn't travel with the team for last week's game against Georgia.

So now that he's working his way back, will he be in uniform Saturday, when Auburn hosts Samford?

"We'll see," coach Gus Malzahn said in a post-practice interview Wednesday night. "It's day-to-day."

And while it may be in the back of Malzahn's mind that Williams risks reinjuring himself if he plays Saturday — instead of resting up for the Iron Bowl matchup against Alabama on Nov. 30 — the second-year coach said he'll take that into consideration before they decide whether the team's leading receiver plays this weekend.

"All those things come into play as a coach," Malzahn said, "but any time they get on the practice field and they're practicing, that's a good thing."
