Martin up­date

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

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.”
