Arkansas WR Hatcher out at least 6 weeks with foot injury

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bret Bielema says wide receiver Keon Hatcher will miss at least six weeks after undergoing surgery for a foot injury.

Hatcher, who leads the Razorbacks (1-1) with 13 catches for 198 yards and a pair of touchdowns, was injured during Saturday's 16-12 loss to Toledo.

Bielema says it could be longer than six weeks before Hatcher is ready to play because of the speed needed at his position, and that redshirting is a possibility for the senior.

Hatcher's injury is the second major one this season for Arkansas, which lost running back Jonathan Williams for at least the regular season with a right foot injury last month.

The Razorbacks host Texas Tech on Saturday night.
