Hogs lose Broderick Green for season

The injury bug snuck up and took a bite out of Arkansas on Friday, though if there's any silver lining, the Razorbacks did not lose a starter. Senior running back Broderick Green tore the ACL in his left knee and will miss the entire 2011 season.

“Broderick had been doing a great job this spring and had been working extremely hard,” Arkansas' Bobby Petrino said in a statement released on Friday. “Although this is unfortunate for him, I know Broderick will focus during the recovery process. Our trainers and medical staff are among the best in the country and will assist him in overcoming the injury.”

Green suffered the injury in practice on Wednesday as the team prepared for it's spring game this weekend.

Green came to Arkansas after transferring from USC in 2009, and started five games for the Razorbacks. Serving as a backup to Knile Davis in 2010, Green ran for 365 yards and 3 touchdowns on 104 carries. Still, while the presence of Knile Davis means that this injury won't be a devastating blow to the Arkansas offense, and it likely won't prove problematic for the team's depth at running back.

Ronnie Wingo Jr, who rushed for 253 yards and a touchdown last season will likely move up the depth chart to become Davis' backup, with Dennis Johnson picking up some carries as well. Johnson only had 9 carries in 2010, but the rising senior rushed for 562 yards during his first two seasons in Fayetteville.

No he was saying that the lose will hurt but not like it would have hurt had it been a starter like Knile Davis who has Heisman potential. Green played full back and was 2nd or 3rd string at RB. So he will be missed but not like others. Get a clue and working on your reading comprehension.
To whom was this directed?  Certainly not me - not missed means no good; that is plainly what the author meant to anyone with adequate reading comprehension skills.  Maybe look in the mirror...

Harsh.  This author essentially just said the guy sucks and it won't matter.  Yikes.

Always hate to see a promising player hurt in spring drills.

Get well soon.
