Auburn's Stevens to play with cast

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Auburn senior linebacker Craig Stevens plans to play in Monday night's Tostitos BCS National Championship Game with a case on his left wrist.

Stevens said he jammed his wrist in the Alabama game and then played in the SEC championship game against South Carolina with a brace on his wrist.

The Auburn medical staff decided to put a cast on it to keep from having the wrist bend back and forth.

"I'll still be able to use my fingers," Stevens said. "The thing we're trying to avoid is having my wrist bend back and getting it jammed up again. That's why they decided to go ahead and put a cast on it."
