No update on injured Hogs WR Greg Childs

Fayetteville (NWAOnline.com) - Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino said he had no update on injured receiver Greg Childs following Saturday's 49-14 win over Vanderbilt.

Childs was injured early in the fourth quarter on a 17-yard reception to the Commodores 2. The junior receiver, who injured his ankle last week, immediately pounded his hands on the ground in anguish and was eventually helped off the field by a pair of trainers, before being taken straight to the locker room. According to Arkansas' radio broadcast, he suffered an injured knee.

Childs had five catches for 87 yards prior to the injury. He is Arkansas' leader in receptions (46), yards (659) and touchdowns (6) this season.

"I'm always concerned when I see Greg go down like that," running back Knile Davis said. "He's always in an awkward position because he's real greedy and wants to get into the endzone. You've got to have that attitude when you get the ball."

Davis scored on the next play to give the Razorbacks a 42-14 lead. Senior tight end D.J. Williams said there was no talk of taking the starters out when the fourth quarter began, despite leading by 21 points.

"That's just one of those decisions you know before you go out there for a drive," said Williams, who noted the drive began in the third quarter. "That's just how it was."

Arkansas has been battling injuries at receiver. Joe Adams missed Saturday's contest with an ankle injury suffered in last week's win over Ole Miss.
