Bret Bielema met with the media Monday and started off his press conference with some tough news, sophomore linebacker Jamario Bell injured himself over the weekend and could potentially miss the entire 2017 season.

Bielema noted that Bell is already scheduled to undergo surgery and is slated to miss 10-12 weeks of action.

“Unfortunately, at some point on Saturday, Jamario Bell did something to his foot,” Bielema revealed. “Whether reaggravated an old injury or developed a new one but he’s getting surgery today at 2 pm. Probably be out the next 10-12 weeks. Losing him for the season, or the majority of it, too bad because he’d been doing a lot of nice things. He had been working at our Hog (position), working the boundary.”

Bell has had a tough go of it early in his Arkansas career, as the former defensive lineman has been shifted to tight end during his initial redshirt season on campus and has since been moved from tight end back to the defensive side of the ball.

The Junction City, Ark., native was a consensus four-star recruit coming out of high school in 2015 but has yet to register any statistics for the Razorbacks in his college career.
