Hogs' RB Johnson Out for Saturday

I've invited Ryan Mallett over Friday for shots of tequila and undercooked chicken. If things go well, I also plan to break out the Ginsu knives. So far he hasn't accepted. 

But he will at least be without one backfield weapon as junior RB Dennis Johnson is out with a bowel injury, suffered on a kickoff return. Johnson was second on the team in rushing yards after two games, but was the Hogs' leading kickoff returner the last two seasons.
Without Johnson, Arkansas will now rely on Knile Davis, Ronnie Wingo Jr., and Broderick Green to carry the rushing load in the backfield. Green led the Razorbacks with 45 yards on 12 carries against ULM. Davis leads the team in rushing after two games with 11 carries for 86 yards.
Petrino said Arkansas also will lean on former running back De’Anthony Curtis, who was moved to wide receiver, and fullback Van Stumon for help if needed.

Damn how many running backs do they have. We apparently don't put the same emphsis on running since we only have 3 that play.
