Wilson Suffers a Severe Right Knee Sprain in S
BY ANDRES FOCIL
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Sophomore wide receiver George Wilson suffered a severe right knee sprain on Friday as the Razorbacks worked in shoulder pads and thigh pads in spring practice drills.
Wilson went down during pass skeleton drills and was taken from the field on a motorized cart as a precautionary measure. The Paducah, Ky., product set a freshman record for catches last season with 40 receptions for 568 yards.
“It makes you sick,” Nutt said. “It can’t be helped some time. He goes hard every play. I just hope nothing is torn.”
A preliminary examination by team trainers and doctors indicated a severe sprain, but Wilson will undergo further evaluation over the weekend. Arkansas head trainer Dean Weber said that Wilson would likely have an MRI done on the injured knee early next week.
The Razorbacks practiced for approximately 90 minutes in preparation for Saturday morning’s major scrimmage.
“Today we went thigh pads and shoulder pads, but still got a lot of work done,” Nutt said. “We are still trying to make improvements and trying to get better. They are looking forward to tomorrow. We are going to go at 10 a.m. and have a good scrimmage. We are going to have a lot of plays and put some guys in some different places and see how they respond.”
Saturday’s scrimmage will begin at 10 a.m. in Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Fans wishing to attend the scrimmage should enter the stadium in the middle of the east grandstand at gate 15 off of Stadium Drive.
