And the hits just keep on coming for Arkansas.
In the stunning upset loss to Louisiana-Monroe, the Razorbacks lost starting quarterback Tyler Wilson to a head injury that may or may not keep him out against No. 1 Alabama Saturday. Starting cornerback Tevin Mitchell suffered an “above-the-shoulder” injury in the loss, too, and is doubtful for the Tide.
Now, the Hogs have lost a backup fullback/running back as well.
Kody Walker, head coach (for now) John L. Smith confirmed, suffered a broken leg against ULM and will miss the remainder of the season. Walker suffered the injury covering a punt in the fourth quarter of the overtime loss.
With Week 1 starter Kiero Small out with a foot injury — he could miss the season as well — Walker started this past weekend’s game. Walker carried one time this season, scoring on a one-yard touchdown run in the opener.
Last season, Walker was shutdown three games into the season due to stress fractures in both legs.
