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.
