FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – The Arkansas secondary was one of the biggest question marks entering the 2016 season and the unit has been hit with a string of injuries this week.

Jared Collins is the latest hurt Hog as the senior corner broke his hand in practice earlier this week. Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said at Friday’s kickoff luncheon Collins returned to practice just a few plays later and he isn’t expected to miss any time.

Junior college transfer Britto Tutt, a true sophomore, was competing for a starting position at corner but was lost for the season after suffering a torn ACL on Tuesday. Senior DJ Dean could miss up to a month after pulling a hamstring early this week.
