Monk was held out Tuesday after bruising his ribs in last week's 31-14 win against Tennessee. He's expected to be ready Saturday when No. 5 Arkansas plays at Mississippi State.
"(Marcus) went through some individual drills (Wednesday) and got through about half of it," Arkansas coach Houston Nutt said.
Easily the team's leading receiver in all categories, the 6-foot-6 Monk has 41 catches -- more than double the next closest Razorback -- and 779 yards, including 331 yards in the last two games alone.
While Nutt said Monk could have practiced Tuesday, trainer Dean Weber felt it best if the junior wideout sat for one extra day.
And besides, Arkansas already knows what Monk can do, so there's no reason to hurry him back.
"It's not like he doesn't want to be here," Nutt said. "He's a guy that will do everything you want him to do. He would have gone yesterday if we asked him.
"I think it's just smart listening to Dean, our doctors and our trainers and try to get him as close to full speed as you can by Saturday."
With his two touchdowns last week against Tennessee, Monk now has 21 career TD receptions, ranking second on the school's all-time list behind only Anthony Lucas (23).
