Tuesday Practice Report, 10/16

The Hogs have an open date, so they got a head start on their Auburn preparations at practice Tuesday.

The biggest hit that occurred in Tuesday's University of Arkansas actually was delivered by tailback Fred Talley.
Talley and Razorback head trainer Dean Weber collided, knocking out Weber and sending him the hospital.
A little while later Cedric Cobbs drilled a graduate assitant when the GA got in the way while a play was going on.
But mostly the Razorback players hit each other during a practice that went just over 90 minutes and was held in gorgous Sunny weather in Fayetteville.
"We had a good day today - it was a beautiful day and we got a lot of things done," Nutt said. "We went ahead and started on Auburn a little bit today and we did a lot of work against ourselves. We had good work and good speed against each other."
The Razorbacks (3-3, 1-3), who have this weekend off, are gearing up for SEC Western Division leader Auburn (5-1, 4-0) at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27.
"They like to be in an eight-man front on defense and offensively they do a good job of running the ball and play action while spreading you out," Nutt related after practice.
Nutt's team will work again Wednesday and Thursday and then take the weekend off, which should help the team get its legs back and heal up some bumps and bruises.
"We are trying to get them back, but we an threm pretty good today and they worked pretty hard for two good hours."
Nutt was happy with the burst injured tailback Cedric Cobbs showed in practice
"This has been his best week so far," Nutt said.
Jason Peters, the 6-5, 300-plus pound redshirt freshman, continued his work at tight end in Tuesday's practice aftr spending most of his time at defensive end.
"He is doing some good things and learning fast," Nutt said. "Right now we are going to go through this week and see what it looks like.
"We didn't really want to give him up (on defense), but he wasn't getting that many plays and he is just too good a athlete to be on the sidelines. I just hate looking around and he is in my face and I told him that we are going to get some plays out of him."
