Arkansas Concentrates on Punt Returns
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas conducted a very short practice that lasted about 30 minutes as they anticipated their free weekend before playing Auburn. The Razorbacks focused mainly on punt returns, while trying to get a head start on the Tigers.
“We had a good day today,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “We worked hard on punt returns. We hit some things offensively and defensively for Auburn, just trying to get a head start on our game plan. It’s been a good week and we’re going to give them a couple days off and start back on Sunday.”
Nutt also commented on the improved condition of seniors Lawrence Richardson and George Wilson. Their presence on the field will be needed greatly when the Hogs face their second conference opponent, Auburn.
“George looked a lot better today,” Nutt said. “He was jogging and that’s real encouraging. Lawrence is getting better, but we gave him the day off and that will really help him having a full 72 hours to stay off it. Hopefully he’ll be a 100 percent by Sunday.”
The Razorbacks will enjoy the weekend off, before they go up against Auburn on October 11, in Fayetteville, Ark., for Homecoming. Kickoff is set for 11:30 a.m., in Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium with Jefferson Pilot Sports televising the game.
