There are many questions surrounding Cam Newton and his status with the Auburn Tigers.
Internet rumors Wednesday afternoon stated that Newton would be suspended later today. Those rumors, which reportedly came from Ian Fitzsimmons of KESN Radio in Dallas, were misreported.
Clay Travis of FanHouse spoke to Fitzsimmons, who actually said on air: “With this story, something big could happen in 3-4 hours.”
Someone heard that quote and ran with it as news. Auburn coach Gene Chizik confirmed Newton’s status for this Saturday’s game against Georgia.
“Cameron Newton will be playing Saturday against the Georgia Bulldogs,” Chizik said during his appearance on the weekly SEC coaches teleconference.
One other note: Several bookmakers in Las Vegas and online have suspended betting on this week’s Auburn-Georgia game.
That’s the latest. There will be more rumors, mostly inaccurate and some perhaps on point, as the day continues. We will keep you updated as it happens.
