Tiger Cornerback Suffers Another Injury

Auburn football player Aairon Savage has suffered another injury.

Auburn, Ala.--Senior cornerback Aairon Savage, who missed the entire 2008 Auburn football season after suffering a preseason knee injury, has been injured again.

Auburn head coach Gene Chizik said on Tuesday, "Aairon Savage did suffer an injury while working out, and at this time, the extent of the injury is still being evaluated by our medical staff."

Savage participated in some of the spring drills, but was limited as he continued to recover from knee surgery. His new injury is not related to the knee surgery, but Chizik didn't give additional details about the defensive back's situation.

Savage has 16 career starts for the Tigers, all as a safety. He made the move to cornerback last year, a position he played at Westover High School.

Injuries cut into his playing time in 2007 when he saw action in seven games with three starts. He finished the year with 26 tackles, including two for lost yardage, and recovered a fumble.
