Arkansas lost to Florida on Saturday. Making matters worse, the Razorbacks lost starting cornerback Will Hines for the season, according to Matt Jones of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. Hines was carted off the field in the second half after suffering a broken arm.
Hines tweeted the news early Sunday morning.
Can't believe my season ended this early man... Can't do anything else but stay positive and have faith.. It'll Trouble for y'all next year!— Will Hines (@_9Piece) October 6, 2013
Hines' loss hurts the Razorbacks in the experience department. He is only a sophomore, but he has started 15 games, including all six games this season. He appeared in every game for the team a year ago, too, and his 2013 season ends with 22 tackles and an interception.
The Razorbacks may turn to redshirt freshman Jared Collins to start in Hines' place; Collins was listed as Hines' backup on Arkansas' depth chart last week. Collins has appeared in four games this season and has made seven tackles.
