Wednesday morning practice includes scrimmage

FAYETTEVILLE – The Razorback football team practiced in full pads within the friendly confines of Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium on Wednesday morning for more than two hours, a session that included a scrimmage.

Starting the day off with their customary sets of drills, working on fundamentals like tackling, route running and blocking, the Razorbacks set off with the first team offense and defense after 20 minutes and started their scrimmage.

Not necessarily a true scrimmage the Hogs repeatedly snapped the ball between the 20 and 30 yard lines and didn’t move up and down the field until late in the morning session. Arkansas’ defense however was up to the challenge set forth by Sunday’s effort as it looked vastly improved over the first several plays. Even though the Hogs looked strong defensively, the Razorback offense was able to move the ball at times. Senior quarterback Casey Dick made several great passes including a long play to freshman Jarius Wright.

After a short break the Hogs worked on its punt coverage before going back on the field and participating in another scrimmage like situation. The practice ended with field goals.

The Razorbacks are back on the field for their second session on Wednesday beginning at 4 p.m. For more information regarding Razorback football or University of Arkansas athletics please visit
