FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas coach John L. Smith says there is a plan in place for running back Knile Davis’ return to full-contact work, through he’s not quite ready to share that plan.
Davis sat out the scrimmage portion of the Razorbacks’ practice in Razorback Stadium on Saturday morning. The junior, who missed all of last season with an ankle injury, has taken part in each of Arkansas’ practices this month and has faced the usual bumps that come with wearing pads.
However, he has yet to be tackled to the ground — standing off to the side during Saturday’s scrimmage, helmet in hand and encouraging teammates.
Smith says Davis doesn’t know the coaches’ plan for his return to full-contact.
