Arkansas DT Robert Thomas out for season

Posted:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bret Bielema says defensive tackle Robert Thomas will miss the remainder of the season after breaking his left leg in a loss to South Carolina.

Bielema says Thomas had surgery Sunday night on his broken left leg, which he injured during the second half of last week's 52-7 loss to the Gamecocks.

The senior is expected to need three to four months to recover, which effectively ends his playing career with the Razorbacks (3-4, 0-3 Southeastern Conference).

Thomas, from Muskogee, Okla., has 31 tackles and 3.5 sacks this season - including six tackles for lost yardage. He is in his third season with the Razorbacks after one season in junior college.

Arkansas, which has lost four straight games, travels to face No. 1 Alabama (6-0, 3-0) on Saturday.
