Sorahan Doubtful for Weber State

The Arkansas Razorbacks spent two hours on the practice fields Wednesday afternoon in preparation for Saturday's game against the Weber State Wildcats.

After coming away from practice Tuesday disappointed in the teams' performance, head coach Houston Nutt was pleased with the Hogs' enthusiasm and attitude today.

"They guys came out today and really got after it," Nutt said. "They had a lot of energy and executed well on both sides of the ball. It was much better than yesterday."

After returning to practice on Monday, quarterback Ryan Sorahan was held out of workouts Wednesday. Sorahan injured his back Sept. 22 against Alabama and did not play last week against Georgia.

"It doesn't look like he will play against Weber State," Nutt said. "We just want him to get healthy and get to feeling better because we will need him the remainder of the season."

Nutt also said the availability of tailback Cedric Cobbs, who has been nursing a sore hamstring, is uncertain.

"If he is healthy we'd like to get him in the game," Nutt said. "But right now we don't know. If there is a chance he will re-injure the hamstring by playing on Saturday then he will not play. But, if Cedric is 90 percent healthy or better, then we will get him there to shake off the rust."

Decori Birmingham and Mark Pierce could see playing time at the tailback position if injuries continue to limit the Hogs.

"Depending on how Cedric and Fred Talley are feeling this Saturday we might get some of our younger guys in there," Nutt said. "There is a good possibility that Decori and Mark will get some carries this weekend."

The Razorbacks and Wildcats will kickoff from Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium this Saturday at 6 p.m.
