Arkansas Begins Work On South Carolina
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks spent just over an hour working in a sporadic drizzle Tuesday afternoon as they began their preparations for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said the Razorbacks spent most of Tuesday going over game film before taking to the outdoor practice fields.

“It was a good day of work in the film room,” Nutt said. “We started working on South Carolina. We had a good practice today.”

The Razorbacks will have two weeks to prepare for South Carolina. Nutt said the Razorbacks were not as physical in Tuesday’s practice in an attempt to allow players to recover from injuries.

“The main thing is that we get some people healthy,” Nutt said. “We’re going on our eighth week of football and last Saturday (against Georgia) was a very physical game. We don’t want to beat them up anymore.”

Nutt said he has seen improvement in some of the injured Razorbacks.

“Matt (Jones) is better than he was last week and that is a good sign,” Nutt said. “Sam Olajubutu looks like he is going to be fine as well.”

Nutt was still uncertain how much freshman fullback Peyton Hillis will be used in the coming weeks.

“I’m very thankful that he is getting better,” Nutt said. “It’s hard to say how much he will be a part of the game plan, we’ll just have to wait and see.”

The Razorbacks will practice again Wednesday afternoon as they head into their second open date of the season.
