Knights Evaluating Health Status

Wide out Doug Gabriel and defensive end Rashad Jeanty's playing statues for Saturday will both be determined at game time this Saturday as each showed improvement in Thursday's practice.

Gabriel, who leads the nation in yards per reception, was forced to miss last week's game with a right ankle sprain. Jeanty is battling a left ankle sprain.

The rest of the Golden Knights are listed as probable for this Saturday's game at Arkansas.

For the first time in the history of the award, two players received this week's "Big Stick" award, with senior defensive end Josh McKibben and senior offensive tackle Steve Edwards sharing the honor. The traditional award is handed out each Thursday after practice to the player who makes the biggest hit (block or tackle) in the previous week's game. The award was established in 1983.

Kickoff for this week's game is set for 2 p.m. from Arkansas' Razorback Stadium.
