AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn says linebacker Cassanova McKinzy has movement in all extremities as he is being treated at a local hospital for a neck injury.

McKinzy was injured on the final play of the first quarter in Saturday night's game against No. 25 Mississippi. McKinzy and other Auburn players were chasing Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace, who escaped the rush and completed a pass.

McKinzy appeared to collide with a teammate and remained down on the field for several minutes after the play.

Medical personnel immobilized McKinzy on a flat board before he was placed on a stretcher. He was still wearing his helmet as he was carted off the field and taken to East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika, Ala.
