FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas completed its first day of two-a-day practices Friday evening with an hour-and-40-minute workout in full pads on the practice fields south of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
The Hogs’ morning practice lasted just over an hour inside the Willard and Pat Walker Pavilion.
Sophomore quarterback Casey Dick received good news after undergoing a MRI Friday morning that did not revel any damage to his back.
“The MRI came back negative, which is very positive,” Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt said. “He is going to take two or three days off. The doctors want him to rest and do some core exercises. Hopefully Monday we can get him back on the field, and get him going. That was good news.”
The Razorbacks will hold an estimated 60-play scrimmage inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium beginning at 6:40 p.m. The scrimmage is open to the public and free of charge.
The Hogs’ first-team offense is slated to receive about 30 snaps on Saturday night with Robert Johnson and Mitch Mustain splitting the reps with the first team.
Fans attending Saturday’s scrimmage should keep several things in mind when arriving at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Fans should enter Gate 1 on the southwest corner of the stadium and sit designated areas in the west stands. Seating areas in the south and on the east side of the stadium will not be available for fan seating. Gate 1 will open at 6 p.m. Restroom facilities will be available on the west side of the stadium.
