Auburn Tigers offensive lineman Xavier Dampeer (52) looks on during the NCAA football game between LSU Tigers and Auburn on Saturday, Sept. 19, 2015, at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. LSU Tigers defeated Auburn Tigers 45-21. Albert Cesare / AdvertiserAUBURN — Auburn senior offensive lineman Xavier Dampeer will miss an “extended period of time” due to an undisclosed injury.Auburn head coach Gus Malzahnmade the announcement Monday morning during his media conference but refused to discuss the nature of Dampeer’s injury or his situation at all.According to multiple reports, Dampeer suffered a significant jaw injury in downtown Auburn Saturday night in an incident that may be connected to the dismissal of D’haquille Williams from the Auburn program.Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said last week that the only reported injuries on the offensive or defensive line were Carl Lawson’s hip ailment that has kept him out since the season opener vs. Louisville. In that same answer, Malzahn said everybody in those two positional groups “good”. However, when asked why he didn’t reveal Dampeer’s injury after it reportedly occurred several days prior, the Tigers third-year head coach said he couldn’t remember the day reporters asked about it but “I’ve always been forthright with that”.Malzahn refused to discuss the details on Oct. 6 involving the reported incident with Williams at SkyBar and whether other players on the roster were involved. On Oct. 9, Dampeer posted on his Facebook page acknowledging his injury saying “thanks for the support. I will get well soon”. Over the last few days, Dampeer has responded to several fans and well-wishers reaching out on his social media page.Dampeer has only seen action in the season opener against Louisville and Austin Golson is expected to draw the start Thursday night at Kentucky (6 p.m., ESPN).Malzahn said the coaching staff has “a couple of different options” at backup center if Golson suffers an injury or is ineffective. Malzahn named Monday senior guard Devonte Danzey as the primary plan if the offensive line needs to be shuffled around.“Deon Mix is also a guy that’s played a lot of center so we do have some options if something happened to our starter,” Malzahn said Monday.
