AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Auburn cornerback Aairon Savage will miss
the season after undergoing knee surgery. Coach Tommy Tuberville said Wednesday's operation was a success. Savage was a starting safety last season and finished with 26 tackles. He hurt the knee in Monday's practice.

Tuberville did not specify the extent or nature of the injury.
Savage's brother told the Albany Herald in Georgia that the player
had a dislocated knee cap, a torn ACL and a torn MCL. Savage is eligible for a medical redshirt and could return in 2009 with two years remaining.
