FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — It may mark the official start of football season when the pads come on, like Arkansas did Thursday.

Razorbacks coach Sam Pittman thought it was a "wonderful practice."

"If we had a terrible practice, I'd say it," he said later. "We got a lot of things accomplished.:

The Hogs went through a wide range of drills. They covered a lot, even in the 20 minutes or so the media was allowed to watch.

Razorbacks defensive lineman Marcus Miller in fall camp Monday, Aug. 8, 2022, on the outdoor practice fields at the football center in Fayetteville. Miller has been out with injury for much of August.

One thing we did learn is Warren's Marcus Miller had arthroscopic surgery on his knee this week and isn't expected back for a few weeks, according to Pittman.

"It is disappointing because he's worked so hard and was doing so well," he said after Thursday's practice. "I believe he'll be back when school starts (somewhere around Aug. 22). He'll have two weeks before the Cincinnati game.

"He's got a good attitude and the surgery went well."

The procedure was done for a little cleanup in a knee.

During the portion of practice the media was allowed to see, the offense ran a passing drill and we got to see good-on-good

It was spirited. At one point, wide receiver Jadon Haselwood lined up on the right side and preseason All-American Jalen Catalon jumped in to guard him one-on-one.

Catalon won on that play.

"I felt like the defense wanted to get to the ball worse than we wanted to keep them away," Pittman said later."We talked to them about that."

Thursday's practice was the sixth and they will return for a normal practice on Friday afternoon. We'll hear from the linebackers and position coach Michael Scherer afterwards.

Saturday is a scrimmage that will not be open to the fans or the media.
