Auburn practice report, 4/7: Defensive back Jonathan Jones not dressed out

AUBURN, Ala. — Reporters were permitted to view approximately 20 minutes of practice on Tuesday, which marked the ninth session of the spring for Auburn.

Not a lot going on today while the media was present, so updates will be few.

Rising senior receiver D'haquille Williams is apparently dealing with a minor injury of some sort. He was getting help during stretches from a trainer, working on his right leg. That we know of, he hasn't missed any time this spring. Perhaps coach Gus Malzahn will provide an update during his post-practice interview tonight?

In other injury news, rising senior corner Jonathan Jones was not participating. He was dressed in his jersey, but instead of cleats, he was wearing sneakers. According to defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, Jones has had a nagging foot injury plaguing him this spring.

Jason Smith was one of four players working at punt return, along with Stephen Roberts, Marcus Davis and Gray King.

At kick return, four players were taking reps: receivers Ricardo Louis and Stanton Truitt, running back Roc Thomas and defensive back Johnathan Ford.

A pair of former Carver and Auburn stars attended Tuesday's practice: defensive back Roderick Hood and defensive lineman Gabe Wright.
