NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen says a hip injury has ended his college career.

Lutzenkirchen posted on his Twitter page Saturday that he was "sad to say it is over at Auburn."

Coach Gene Chizik said after the Tigers' 17-13 loss at Vanderbilt that Lutzenkirchen's senior season is over. Lutzenkirchen tweeted that his hip has been bothering him since fall camp "to the point where I was hurting the team for me to not play at 100%. Gave it all I had. Sorry."

Lutzenkirchen's 15 catches for 139 yards were second on the team. C.J. Uzomah started against Vandy for the 1-6 Tigers.

Lutzenkirchen's 14 career touchdown catches is a record for Auburn tight ends.

Chizik says tackle Avery Young is also out for the season with an unspecified injury.
