FAYETTEVILLE -- The University of Arkansas football team resumed spring practice Tuesday afternoon inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
Assistant head coach and linebackers coach Taver Johnson commented after practice that the defense has shown continual improvement throughout spring practice.
"We're making a lot of plays, but we're leaving some on the field too," Johnson said. "When in doubt, the best thing about playing football is you can run and hit."
Johnson mentioned he was impressed with the work ethic and the instincts of the defense as it continued to practice a new scheme.
"The guys are really trying to do what we're asking them to do," Johnson said. "The main thing we're trying to tell them to do is not think too much. Just go play. They've got to start trusting that part of it, and we'll be fine."
Arkansas continues practice Wednesday, April 4. Practices on April 6 and April 13 will be open to the public leading up to the Red-White Spring Game, sponsored by Cox Advanced TV, on April 21 at 2 p.m. If practice is held inside Walker Pavilion, it will not be open to the public due to space constraints. The practice schedule is subject to change. Please check ArkansasRazorbacks.com for any updates.
