Wide receiver Jaylon Denson and linebacker Justin Garrett, both juniors, have been granted a medical hardship waiver and will have an extra year of eligibility after they missed a majority of the 2013 season with injury, Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn said Monday.

Denson tore his patellar tendon in his left leg during Auburn’s loss to LSU on Sept. 21 in Baton Rouge. Denson had just three catches last year before his season-ending injury.
