NOTEBOOK: Moseley's shoulder still an issue

AUBURN -- Clint Moseley doesn't sound like a quarterback on the cusp of a starting job.

"If I have to play, I mean, they'd have to alter the game plan a little bit," Moseley said. "I'll be able to play. Nothing is torn. There's no way I'd not play - if I had to play."

Moseley first reported the issue prior to spring practice and was limited throughout March and April as well. He was hoping that a few months of rest would help assuage the problem, but the joint continues to cause significant discomfort.

He's receiving therapy at least twice a day - and will continue on that program. Moseley keeps hoping for a breakthrough.

"They said if I was a pitcher, they'd be me on the (disabled list)," Moseley said. "Right now, I'm in this competition. I just need a break, but that's something I can have right now.
