Receiver Brandon Martin’s status for Saturday’s scrimmage was still up in the air as of mid-day Thursday. Coach Bret Bielema said Martin, who did not participate in last week’s scrimmage, underwent treatment for a “soft tissue” issue in his back that caused him to miss a few days.
“We’re hoping to get him back some time later this week,” receivers coach Michael Smith said. “Here it is Thursday. We’ll find out what he can do this afternoon and hope to get him back today or tomorrow.
“I’d love to give him an opportunity to go in the scrimmage if he’s capable of going. We want to be cautious with it because we know we’re going to need him in the long run.”
