Auburn running back Kamryn Pettway could miss the remainder of the season with a shoulder injury.

Pettway suffered a fracture in his scapula bone late in game against Arkansas on Oct. 22. Auburn officials realized Pettway's shoulder was sore but did not know about the extent of the injury until Friday, when he underwent an X-ray on the injured shoulder. "We thought it would get better and it didn’t get any better," Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said.

No. 16 Auburn (6-2, 4-1 SEC) travels to Texas A&M (5-3, 3-2) on Saturday. Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m. CT on ESPN.

"I'm hoping we get him back before the end of the year," Malzahn said.

Pettway will not need surgery. The injury will likely sideline him for at least four weeks.
