Razorbacks Get Early Start on Third Practice o

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas got an early start on Wednesday as the Hogs worked out in shorts and helmets in a practice that kicked off just before 6 a.m. at the Walker Pavilion.
The Razorbacks practiced for approximately 75 minutes in their third practice of the spring. The NCAA allows schools to have 15 football workouts in the spring.
“We wanted to get them out here early to get some things done,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “It is important to get everyone on the same page before spring break, so that when we come back we can get right back into the thick of it. I feel like we are making some progress. Our goal is to get better every day. We started out a little slow, but overall I was happy with the effort they gave us this morning.”
Junior offensive guard Gene Perry sat out Wednesday’s workout after straining his knee in Tuesday’s practice.
Arkansas will don full pads for the first time in the spring on Wednesday. The Hogs will practice in full pads again on Thursday before taking a week off for spring break. Arkansas will resume spring drills on Monday, March 24.
