Arkansas' Davis healthy and ready for opener
Monday, August 27, 2012
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas coach John L. Smith says the Razorbacks made it through preseason camp without any major injuries and appear to be at full strength entering this week's season opener against Jacksonville State.
That includes Knile Davis, who saw his first live action during a scrimmage last week. Davis, who led all Southeastern Conference running backs with 1,322 yards rushing in 2010, is back after missing all of last season with an ankle injury.
Smith, entering his first season as head coach of the No. 10 Razorbacks following the firing of Bobby Petrino, says Davis fumbled on his first carry of the scrimmage, but that the ground caused the fumble and Davis looked good otherwise.
Arkansas was 11-2 last season and returns first-team All-SEC quarterback Tyler Wilson.
