Harsin: Nick Brahms is ‘done with football’

·1 min read

Auburn will be without one of the most experienced linemen in the country.

Nick Brahms has started 33 games at center for Auburn but will not be able to play in the 2022 college fotball season due to knee issues head coach Brian Harsin announced Monday. Harsin added that Brahms is “done with football.”

Brahms appeared in 40 games during his five seasons at Auburn after redshirting in 2017. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Brahms became the starting center during the 2018 season and then split starting duties during 2019 before winning the job towards the end of the season.

He was Auburn’s full-time starter for the 2021 and 2021 seasons and will leave a hole in the middle of the offensive line that Auburn must fill.

Junior tate johnson is listed as the starter on Auburn’s Week 1 depth chart. Veteran Jalil Irvin and sophomore Avery Jernigan are listed as his backups. Johnson has appeared in one game during his career.

Auburn will start the season Saturday against Mercer at 6 p.m. CT in Jordan-Hare Stadium.
