AUBURN, Alabama (Ticker) -- Auburn quarterback Brandon Cox may miss a few days of practice this week with a bruised non-throwing shoulder, coach Tommy Tuberville said Saturday.

Cox completed 16-of-26 passes for 189 yards and touchdown on Saturday for the 23rd-ranked Tigers, who held off lowly Mississippi, 17-3, in a hotly contested Southeastern Conference matchup.

A senior, Cox engineered the clinching drive, hitting Rodgeriqus Smith with a 34-yard strike in the waning minutes. But the injury to the 23-year-old Cox was not revealed until after the contest.

"Brandon bruised his non-throwing shoulder, and he will probably be out a couple of days," Tuberville said in the postgame news conference. "He will be real sore." Auburn (6-2, 4-2 SEC West) plays non-conference opponent Tennessee Tech next Saturday before closing the season with SEC rivals Georgia and Alabama.
