to start for the opener against Auburn. However, he could play in the game at some point.

Timothy suffered a torn meniscus in practice last week, and had surgery at the end of the week to repair the tear.

"I don't see him being able to get back in a position where he's ready to start," Swinney said. "I'm hopeful that we can get him ready. He's just missing too much time, but I'm encouraged by where he is right now."
