Arkansas Razorback Football: News and Notes for Mississippi State Game


Sep 29, 2012; College Station, TX, USA; Arkansas Razorbacks running back Knile Davis (7) runs the ball for a touchdown against the Texas A

The Razorbacks have suffered through more injuries and suspensions during the 2012 college football season that any Razorback Nation fan cares to believe. This week the Hogs get one player back but will take the field without a few key players in their quest to retain bowl eligibility.

Junior running back Knile Davis is scheduled to return to action this week when the Hogs travel to Starkville to play the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Davis has missed the last two games due to a hamstring injury.

Nate Holmes suffered a concussion against South Carolina last week. He will be replaced on kickoff returns by senior cornerback Kaelon Kellybrew. Holmes had two returns against the Gamecocks for 38 total yards. Senior running back Ronnie Wingo Jr. had one return for 27 yards against USC in his place.

Senior linebacker Terrell Williams will not make the trip to Starkville as part of his suspension for being arrested for a DUI the Sunday following Arkansas’ win over Tulsa.

Senior tight end Chris Gragg is doubtful again this week due a deep bone bruise that was initially suffered against Rutgers and re-aggravated during the Ole Miss game. Gragg had three receptions for 55 yards against the Rebels with one touchdown before leaving the game on the same play that he was injured on against the Scarlet Knights.

Junior wide receiver Brandon Mitchell is serving the last game of his four-game suspension against MSU. The Arkansas Razorback coaching staff and media relations department have not commented on why Mitchell is serving a suspension. All fans know is he will return to play against LSU in the regular season finale.
