Tuesday, Olajubutu made steps to make sure last week's game would be his only time off.
"Sam got back out there," Arkansas coach Houston Nutt coach. "He just did a little jogging and running around.
"Hopefully, he'll be able to go a little more (Wednesday) and then do it all Thursday."
Having Olajubutu back for this week's game at South Carolina could be crucial.
With the Gamecocks offense getting better since senior Syvelle Newton took over at quarterback, facing South Carolina without Arkansas' top defensive player could make for a long night.
"It's always good to see your captain out there," Nutt said. "The guy that has been through it, made plays and made tackles, that's always good."
Before Saturday, Olajubutu -- a semifinalist for both the Butkus and Bednarik Awards -- hadn't missed a game due to injury since Nov. 22, 2003, snapping of streak of 31 consecutive games played and 26 straight starts.
But the senior suffered a bone bruise and a severely sprained ligament on the outside of his left knee in a 38-3 win over Ole Miss on Oct. 21.
