No. 17 Arkansas will be without senior right tackle Dalton Wagner indefinitely.

The 6-foot-9, 330-pounder missed Saturday’s game against Ole Miss with a finger injury, and on Monday during his weekly press conference Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman confirmed that surgery was required and that Wagner “won’t be available for a while.”

Wagner had dealt with nagging injuries for much of the season, including an apparent back issue earlier in the year.

TheĀ  Spring Grove, Illinois, native played in 20 games, starting 17, the last 2 seasons at right tackle after moving to the position from the left tackle slot he played as a freshman.

No. 17 Arkansas returns to action on Saturday at home against Auburn.
