"We had a real good practice with excellent focus," Arkansas coach Houston Nutt said.
Arkansas generally works at least one day in full pads, but the team is trying to keep as many players healthy as possible. The Hogs will practice today, then work out for about an hour Thursday morning before leaving by 11:40 a.m. that day for Little Rock, site of Friday's game.
Fullback Peyton Hillis (knotted thigh) may not practice until Thursday, if then, but Nutt said, "There are some things he could still do in the game. We'd love to have him."
Nutt credited strongside linebacker Matt Hewitt (sprained knee) with toughing it out through some practice drills Tuesday. The junior missed most of Saturday's win at Mississippi State after suffering the knee injury.
"I think he'll play, but I don't know how much or how long," Nutt said.
Meanwhile, Nutt said he didn't plan to "hold anyone back" for the SEC Championship Game against No. 4 Florida on Dec. 2 in Atlanta.
"Last week we had every intention to hold (offensive guard) Stephen Parker out, but we couldn't do it," Nutt said.
Parker was expected to miss the Mississippi State game because of a strained knee, but when Arkansas' offense struggled, the senior returned for two series in the second half.
Nutt spoke about Arkansas' chance to win 11 games -- only the 1964 and 1977 UA teams have done that -- and go through the SEC unbeaten.
"Very few (teams) have won 11," he said. "And to be undefeated in the SEC, that would be something."
