Auburn Wide Receiver Kyle Davis Set To Return To Tigers After Missing Spring Practice

Auburn Coach Gus Malzahn said on Monday that he expects wide receiver Kyle Davis back soon.

Auburn, Ala.--Missing Auburn's spring practices while dealing with what Coach Gus Malzahn described as "personal business," talented sophomore wide receiver Kyle Davis announced on social media on Monday that he was back on campus.

While Malzahn wouldn't confirm the receiver's return just yet, the coach said he expects the sophomore to be back and ready to play for the 2017 football season after missing spring practice.

"We do expect him to be back this summer," Malzahn said. "We expect it to be fairly soon."

With the first summer semester set to begin on Thursday, Davis being back on campus on Monday could have him ready to go and get back in the swing of things.

"We expect him to be back with us fairly soon," Malzahn reiterated. "That's probably the best way to answer that right now."

One of Auburn's most dynamic playmakers last season as a true freshman, Davis caught 12 passes for 248 yards and a pair of touchdowns and could have an expanded role this year with the Tigers adding more in the way of passing under new offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey.
