Practice notes and observations - Sept. 10

Arkansas did thud work and went 1s vs. 1s and 2s vs. 2s in period No. 2 today. Here are the first team units and other notes:

1st offense
QB: Nick Starkel
RBs: Rakeem Boyd began the series, Devwah Whaley entered later
OL (L–>R): Myron Cunningham, Kirby Adcock, Ty Clary, Ricky Stromberg, Dalton Wagner
WRs: Koilan Jackson, Treylon Burks and T.Q. Jackson
TEs: Cheyenne O’Grady and Grayson Gunter

• Just like last week during the open portion of practice, Colton Jackson (foot) and Austin Capps (left ankle) did not participate in this period, but both were involved in the offensive line group work. Capps, who did not play at Ole Miss, is hopeful to return to the field Saturday vs. Colorado State, Chad Morris said Monday.

• Trey Knox and Mike Woods were present at practice, but did not go through the thud work today. De’Vion Warren (hand) was present as well. He did not take part in the team vs. team work either.

• Connor Limpert and backup kicker Matthew Phillips finished each set of plays with a field goal. Limpert made his 47-yard kick, and Phillips missed his wide right.

• During the thud work between the 1s, Nick Starkel completed a pair of balls to Cheyenne O’Grady for nice gains. He would have picked up 10-15 yards, I believe, on the first grab. He caught and weaved his way across the field before hopping out of bounds.

1st defense
DL: Gabe Richardson, Sosa Agim, TJ Smith, Mataio Soli
LB: Bumper Pool, Scoota Harris
CB: Jarques McClellion
SS: Kam Curl
FS: Joe Foucha
CB: Montaric Brown
NB: Greg Brooks

Note: Jamario Bell (knee) was not present at today’s practice. Morris added on Monday it is unlikely that the Junction City native plays this weekend against the Rams. He did not practice last week or travel with the team to Oxford.

2nd defense
DL: Zach Williams, Jonathan Marshall, Isaiah Nichols, Collin Clay
LB: Grant Morgan and Hayden Henry
CB: Devin Bush
SS: Myles Mason
FS: Brenden Young
CB: LaDarrius Bishop
NB: Micahh Smith

Injuries
Chase Harrell, who wore a green jersey during the open portion of practice on Tuesday of last week and was not present Wednesday, wore green again today. He appears to be favoring his right shoulder. After running a route and catching a pass on air, he doubled over and had a trainer check on him for a moment. He was the only player in green.

Absences

DE Jamario Bell (knee; unlikely to play this week, Morris said Monday)

TE Chase Harrell (possible shoulder)

WR Jordan Jones (high ankle sprain; out around another week)

WR Daulton Hyatt (hamstring)

DE Dorian Gerald (strained artery in neck; out for season)

WR Deon Stewart (ACL; out for season)

OL Noah Gatlin (ACL; out for season)

We’ll see what happens on Saturday, but hearing the backups in the secondary will see the field.

LaDarrius Bishop has a chance to be special. Hearing his name a lot.
