Davis practicing with Razorbacks

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Running back Knile Davis is practicing with No. 6 Arkansas again, offensive coordinator Garrick McGee said Tuesday.

Davis, a junior, suffered what was described as a season-ending ankle injury in the preseason. It was unclear whether he would return to a game this season.

Davis rushed for 1,322 yards and 13 touchdowns last season, the most for any running back in the Southeastern Conference.

He was a preseason all-SEC selection before breaking his ankle during a team scrimmage on Aug. 11. The injury, which required surgery, was the fifth major one for him in less than four years.

If Davis can return, he would assist an Arkansas running game that ranks ninth in the SEC with 144.4 yards per game.

The Razorbacks (9-1, 5-1 SEC) host Mississippi State on Saturday.
