FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas sophomore linebacker Dre Greenlaw will miss at least the Razorbacks’ next two games, coach Bret Bielema said during Wednesday’s SEC coaches teleconference.
Greenlaw suffered a foot injury in the first quarter of the Hogs’ Oct. 8 home loss to Alabama and had surgery the following Monday. He started the first six games of the season for Arkansas.
As a true freshman in 2015, Greenlaw finished second on the team with 95 tackles.
The linebacker positions are among the thinnest on Arkansas’ roster. Junior Dwayne Eugene and true freshman De’Jon Harris have played in Greenlaw’s place.
Despite missing the last 11 quarters of action, Greenlaw is tied for third on the team this season with 36 tackles.
Based on the tentative timeline Bielema laid out Wednesday, Greenlaw will miss Arkansas’ final two home games of the season, scheduled for the next two weeks against No. 11 Florida and No. 13 LSU.
Bielema said Greenlaw’s status after that remains unclear. The Razorbacks wrap up the 2016 regular season with trips to Mississippi State and Missouri.
