Auburn runningback Kamryn Pettway will not play in the 50th Anniversary Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl New Years Day, cutting his season short. 

Pettway suffered an injury to his shoulder blade against Arkansas and has not been able to bounce back since. Earlier this season he suffered from plantar fasciitis followed by an ankle inury. Even amongst his injuries he still manages to rack up 76 carries for 305 yards and six touchdowns.

A senior at Auburn, he is expected to graduate this weekend and before his injury was working towards pursuing a career in the NFL.

Coach Malzahn in a press conference Wednesday announced the news. Pettway has not yet spoken publicly about his injury. 

The #7 Auburn Tigers are set to start back up practices Friday, as they prepare to take on the #12 UCF Knights January 1st at 11:30am on ESPN.
