Arkansas kickoff man Lane Saling will not play for the Razorbacks in 2016.
Saling is not listed on the team’s roster, and a school spokesman confirmed to Nate Allen of ArkansasOnline on Tuesday that he would not play this season.
Saling, a fourth-year walk-on, recorded 11 touchbacks among his 70 kickoffs in 2015. He had three kickoffs and a point-after attempt in 2014.
With Saling’s absence, kickoff duties will fall to either third-year sophomore Cole Hedlund or senior Adam McFain. Hedlund handled all of Arkansas’ place-kicking last season and had four kickoffs. McFain was the Razorbacks’ main kickoff man and place-kicker in 2014, but was injured for most of the 2015 season.
