FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino says
running back Dennis Johnson will likely miss Saturday's game with
New Mexico in Little Rock.
Johnson missed the No. 15 Razorbacks season-opening 51-7 win
over Missouri State with a hamstring injury suffered during fall
camp. The junior played in only two games last season before
suffering a season-ending bowel injury.
Arkansas (1-0) gained 102 yards rushing on 33 carries against
the Bears, an average of only 3.1 yards per rush. Junior Ronnie
Wingo led the team with 43 yards on 11 carries, while freshman Kody
Walker added a pair of touchdown runs.
Johnson has averaged 6 yards per carry during his career and was
expected to help fill the void left by the season-ending injury
suffered by Knile Davis.
