AUBURN, Ala. -- Auburn right tackle A.J. Greene is likely out for the season with a left ankle injury.
Coach Gene Chizik says "that's the way it looks at this point." He didn't elaborate on the extent of the injury on Sunday. Greene was hurt on Auburn's initial drive of the fourth quarter in Saturday night's 27-24 overtime win over Clemson, and was carted off the field.
Greene appeared in only two games the last three seasons but won the starting job in fall camp.
Sophomore John Sullen took his place against Clemson. Another potential candidate for the job is junior college transfer Brandon Mosley, who filled in at left tackle when Lee Ziemba was hurt in the Mississippi State game.
