The Arkansas Razorbacks got a pick-me-up as their spring practice begins, with Knile Davis returning from 2011's season-ending injury. But the team also suffered a setback. Linebacker Alonzo Highsmith will miss spring ball with a left pectoral injury, the school announced.
With Jerry Franklin and Tramain Thomas moving along, Highsmith is Arkansas' top returning tackler. He also led the team in tackles for loss and is tops among returning defenders in sacks. He's pretty important. Those who don't keep up with the Hogs may remember his father from his own career with the Miami Hurricanes, Dallas Cowboys, and elsewhere.
