Suddenly, Arkansas’ game against Texas A&M, which the Razorbacks have dominated in recent years, becomes crucial in preventing a four-game slide as the Hogs try to turn the season around.
To make matters worse, Arkansas will be without tight end Chris Gragg and safety Eric Bennett, per coach John L. Smith.
Gragg’s injury is a bone bruise he suffered last weekend against Rutgers and Bennett has been hampered with a hamstring injury. Gragg has been one of Tyler Wilson‘s favorite targets this season. He is second on the team with 19 receptions for 234 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Bennett ranks among the top 10 defenders with 19 tackles and two pass break-ups.
Arkansas needs all hands on deck at this point, and not just for availability, but for leadership as well.
