Arkansas defense takes a hit

Likely to lose one of their leading tacklers for Saturday's game.
Arkansas starting middle linebacker Brooks Ellis will likely miss the Razorbacks' game against No. 10 Georgia on Saturday.
Ellis suffered "a pretty significant bone bruise" on his knee during a game against Alabama, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said Monday. Bielema said there is a slight chance Ellis will play against the Bulldogs, but will likely be out a while.
The sophomore is the Razorbacks' second-leading tackler this season with 39 tackles. Josh Williams would likely start at middle linebacker if Ellis can't play. Williams has six tackles and one sack this season.
