Matt Jones took the snaps for one series because his jammed finger on his throwing hand is still a little tender, according to UA coach Houston Nutt.
That was the only tidbit of news at Thursday's workout, the last for Arkansas ahead of Saturday's season opener against Tulsa.
"It's fine," Jones said afterwards. "I could have done more. It will be perfect by game time."
Jones said the swelling was gone and the coaches made a decision to rest the sore finger earlier in the day.
"We're ready to go," Nutt said. "We had a good practice going over assignments and gave the special teams a good, hard look."
The Hogs worked their freshman combination of punter Jacob Skinner and snapper Brett Goode in a long session on special teams.
"Those two look good in practice, now we have to see what they'll do in a game," Nutt said. "I feel good about them, but it's time to do it in a game."
Nutt continues to side step questions about how he will split time between Matt Jones and Ryan Sorahan at quarterback against Tulsa. He said he knows how it will be done. Apparently, so do the quarterbacks, but no one is tipping the Hogs' plans.
"Yes, we've been told," Jones said. "I'm comfortable with the plan. But, I also know that once we get in a game we will play it by ear. Things can change once we get to a game."
Roy Wittke, the QB coach, said the plans have been been talked about extensively in meetings, just as he promised both last spring.
"We have gone over it and everyone is comfortable and excited about what we are going to do in the games," Wittke said. "Our quarterbacks ... I expect them to play well based on the way they've practiced."
