Rhett Lashlee: 'No issues' with D'haquille Williams' health

AUBURN, Ala. — Auburn receiver D'haquille Williams appeared to be slowed during the media's open viewing portion Tuesday. The rising senior had extra work done on his right leg from one of the team's trainers while stretching.

Whatever the ailment may be, offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee said it was minor in nature.

"There's nothing to that," he said in a post-practice interview Tuesday. "Nine practices in, a lot of guys — wideouts, running backs, linebackers — they're just tight. There's no issues there whatsoever."

Williams, who hails from LaPlace, La., is the Tigers' top returning pass-catcher. Last year, in his first season on the Plains after transferring from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Williams established himself as a reliable target, hauling in 45 receptions for 730 yards; the former was a team-high, while the latter ranked second to only Sammie Coates' 741 yards.

Williams also had a team-best five touchdown catches in 2014.
