AUBURN -- Auburn running back Roc Thomas was in a "minor" auto accident on his way driving back to campus Thursday, Tigers coach Gus Malzahn confirmed today.

Thomas was treated at the East Alabama Medical Center and was released at 2:39 p.m. Thursday, according to an EAMC staffer. Malzahn did not say the exact nature of the injury, but Thomas was at practice Friday and did not appear to show any signs of being hurt.

"He practiced today without any limitations," Malzahn said.

Where the accident happened is unclear as law enforcement officials in Lee County, Chambers County, Auburn Police and Opelika Police departments all said there were no reports of a car accident involving Thomas on their jurisdictions.

Last year's Mr. Football in Alabama and a a five-star recruit, Thomas was on his way back to Auburn from his hometown of Oxford. The Tigers reported for preseason camp Thursday and began practice today.

Thomas ran for 2,211 yards and 32 touchdowns for Oxford last year. He is set to join a crowded Auburn backfield with Cameron Artis-Payne, Corey Grant, Peyton Barber and fellow newcomer and Prattville native Kamryn Pettway.
