Arkansas dealing with trio of preseason injuries
FAYETTEVILLE, Ar. - Bret Bielema says Arkansas has dealt with a trio of significant injuries during the last week.
The Razorbacks coach says sophomore linebacker Otha Peters, senior tight end Austin Tate and senior receiver Demetrius Wilson each sustained injuries this week - with Wilson's a season-ending knee ligament tear.
Peters will miss 6-8 weeks with a broken arm, while Tate is expected to miss approximately six weeks.
Bielema says Wilson, who was listed as a first-team receiver following the spring, will redshirt and return next season. Peters, who had 32 tackles last season as a freshman, could return by the time Arkansas opens Southeastern Conference against Texas A&M on Sept. 28.
Tate had 14 catches for 164 yards last season and was listed as the Razorbacks second-team tight end after the spring.
