Auburn QBs Still Fighting For Job

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Kodi Burns and Chris Todd aren't just trying to prove who's the best passer and runner.

Auburn's two quarterback hopefuls are also under the gun to display leadership, harness any frustrations they might feel and handle the fatigue that comes with two practices a day in the August heat.

Coach Tommy Tuberville said the coaches intend to wait until some time after the second scrimmage later this week to choose a starter. He said both have had good attitudes.

Offensive coordinator Tony Franklin has said he wouldn't be against playing both if neither puts some distance between the other.

On Monday, Tuberville said freshman defensive back Marcus Jemison had surgery to repair a broken leg.
