AUBURN, Ala. (EETV)- Will Hastings had a second knee surgery last week and will likely be out for the rest of the 2018 season.
Hastings tore his ACL back during spring practice, but recovered very quickly and appeared against LSU back in week 3. ESPN reported that it appears he suffered another injury in the same knee that required an additional surgery. Hastings is looking to be out the remainder of the 2018 season.
The senior is eligible to redshirt and will keep the year of eligibility given he only appeared in two games this season.
Losing Hastings as a receiver could cause some offensive trouble for the Tigers. Hastings had 26 receptions for a total of 525 yards and 4 touchdowns in the 2017 season. The Tigers are also dealing with the transfer of Nate Craig-Myers after he decided to transfer back in September.
This Saturday Auburn looks to bounce back from their loss against Mississippi State as they take on Tennessee at Jordan Hare at 11 A.M. CT.
