Sam Pittman shares Arkansas injury update heading into spring camp
All in all, Arkansas is looking forward to having nearly the entire roster ready to compete entering spring practice in Fayetteville.
Entering Year 2 of the Sam Pittman era, the Razorbacks have gotten bigger — the Arkansas coach noted all but one of the team’s offensive linemen weigh over 300 pounds entering spring — and have the necessary depth to run a spirited camp for the first time under the coach’s watch.
The progress the Razorbacks have made in the weight room combined with the addition of 15 early signees give the program a completely different outlook entering camp. When you factor in some good news on the injury front, with nearly the entire roster ready to go, Pittman is eager to see his team hit the practice field in the weeks to come.
According to Pittman, only four Razorbacks will be out to start spring due to injuries.
“I think we had four that we’re limited,” Pittman said on Monday. “Koilan Jackson is still limited, Collin Sutherland is still limited, De’Vion Warren will be very, very slow with him, and Levi Draper. Levi had some shoulder surgeries, so he’s still going to be a little bit limited there.
“And after that, you know, besides nagging injury here and there, I think we’ll have our full roster.”
What a difference a year can make.
