Razorbacks Return to Practice Fields; Sorahan
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks returned to the practice fields Monday afternoon with a light one-hour workout to begin preparations for Saturday’s 6 p.m. contest against Weber State.
The Hogs normally practice on Sunday and use Monday as an off day, but switched after arriving back from Athens early Sunday morning.
“We did not get back to Fayetteville until 2:30 a.m. Sunday and wanted to give the kids time to rest,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “We tried to work most of the soreness out from the Georgia game and get focused on Weber State.”
Quarterback Ryan Sorahan returned to practice and took snaps for the first time since injuring his back against Alabama two weeks ago.
“It was good having Ryan back out here. He is feeling a lot better now,” Nutt said. “I feel very good about our quarterback situation and I have confidence in all three guys, Ryan, Zak and Tarvaris. We’re not afraid to put any of them in the ballgame.”
Nutt also commented on tailbacks Fred Talley, Brandon Holmes and Cedric Cobbs who were each banged up following the Georgia game.
“Fred looked good today,” Nutt said. “Cedric is a little bit better, he just can’t go full speed. Brandon looked better today, but his shoulder is still very sore.”
The Hogs enter the last half of the season playing five of seven games at home including this Saturday’s game against the Weber State Wildcats at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
“It feels very good to be back at home,” Nutt said. “This has been a tough few weeks for us and it will help to have a few games at home down the stretch.”
