Pregame video report: Uzomah out with a finger

AUBURN, Ala. — Already, Jonathan Wallace will be down one target for his quarterbacking debut today against New Mexico State.

Sophomore tight end C.J. Uzomah is out today with what a source said is a broken finger, sustained late in the week of practice. Uzomah was with the team in Saturday’s team prayer circle with a wrap around his right hand.

Uzomah had three catches for a career-high 90 yards last week against Texas A&M, hooking up with Wallace for a 27-yard touchdown and 25-yard gain. He is the second Auburn tight end to miss a game due to injury, with senior tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen out for the year with a hip injury.

That leaves depth depleted at tight end – nobody on the current roster likely to line up there has a catch this season. Brandon Fulse will likely get the start, with Blake Burgess able to serve as a secondary tight end on 22 formations or as an emergency TE if Fulse goes down.

This will be the ninth different starting lineup on offense for Auburn in nine games.
