AU hoping healthy Blake, Reed to aid passing game

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Auburn's passing attack is back at full-strength.

An open date helped top wide receivers Emory Blake and Trovon Reed recover from injuries that had sidelined them for a combined seven games. It's good timing considering the 24th-ranked Tigers visit No. 14 Georgia on Saturday.

Quarterback Clint Moseley says the presence of Blake and Reed "really opens our game plan up and lets us do a few more things."

Blake returned from an ankle injury against Mississippi after missing three games and is still easily Auburn's leading receiver. He had five catches for 71 yards and a touchdown against the Rebels but said he was far from 100 percent.

Reed has missed four games with a shoulder injury.
