It seems iffy that Auburn wide receiver Eli Stove will be able to play at the start of the 2018 season.

According to 247 Sports and SEC Country, Stove tore an ACL during Auburn’s first practice of the spring that included contact. The school has not confirmed Stove’s injury, though he retweeted a picture of himself and friends this month that included crutches. So make of that what you will.
