HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Auburn coach Gus Malzahn says Nick Marshall will "suffer the consequences" but declined to elaborate on the punishment the quarterback will face after he was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana following a traffic stop in Georgia.
Marshall was pulled out of Monday's SEC media days appearance by Malzahn, three days after the senior received a $1,000 ticket in Reynolds, Ga.
Malzahn told beat reporters Marshall had been a "model citizen" before the incident,
The coach says Marshall is "very regretful, and he's embarrassed he hurt his teammates, his family, his coaches."  Marshall had 1,976 yards passing and 1,068 rushing last season, leading the Tigers to the national title game.
Malzahn says defensive end Carl Lawson's status for the season is uncertain after knee surgery.
