Sorahan Remains Sidelined as Hogs Prepare for

Sorahan Remains Sidelined as Hogs Prepare for

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Arkansas Razorbacks spent two hours on the practice fields Wednesday in preparation for Saturday’s Southeastern Conference match-up against the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens.
Arkansas head coach Houston Nutt was pleased with the Hogs’ progress during the two-hour workout.
“We had a good practice today,” Nutt said. “They guys had a lot of energy and were bouncing around and making plays. I was really proud of our effort today.”
Quarterback Ryan Sorahan was held out of practice again Wednesday with a sore back and his availability for Saturday is questionable.
“Ryan couldn’t go again today and right now he looks to be out of the picture for Saturday,” Nutt said. “He’s better and we’ll evaluate him again tomorrow, but it’s tough to be prepared when you don’t practice all week.”
Nutt added that Zak Clark has taken most of the snaps in practice this week for the injured Sorahan. Freshman Tarvaris Jackson is likely to fill the backup role.
“Zak has had a great week of practice,” Nutt said. “He has hung in there and persevered and when you do that good things are going to happen for you. We need one more good day of work tomorrow and we’ll be ready to go.”
Overall, Nutt was pleased with the work of the Razorback offense and said the team continues to work on eliminating turnovers.
“I like the way we played last week, we just need to cut out the turnovers and mistakes,” Nutt said. “I want to play one Saturday without a turnover and play mistake free football.”
