AU loses CB Bell For The Season

Fresh off a 45-7 beatdown at Georgia — that could have actually been worse had Mark Richt not taken his foot off the gas — the Auburn Tigers are now facing a new problem in their secondary.  Junior cornerback T’Sharvan Bell is out for the season after suffering a major knee injury on Saturday.

Defensive coordinator Ted Roof says Bell will be sorely missed by a unit that’s already had its share of struggles.

“(Bell) means a lot to our defense, not just the way he plays, but the things he provides us off the field.  I really have a lot of respect for him, and how much he’s grown.  I’m really proud of him and love him and it’s just ad that that happened.

Who will replace Bell in Auburn’s secondary is anyone’s guess.  According to The Opelika-Auburn News, at least four players’ names — Ryan White, Jonathon Mincy, Jermaine Whitehead and Robenson Therezie — have been kicked around as possible fill-ins.

The Plainsmen already rank dead last in the SEC in pass defense, allowing 216 yards per game through the air.
