FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas junior cornerback Kevin Richardson II will miss the rest of the season after suffering a pectoral tear during the Hogs’ season opening win over Louisiana Tech.
Hogs coach Bret Bielema announced Richardson’s injury during his weekly news conference Monday.
Richardson was listed as a second-team cornerback but was the team’s top nickelback.
The Jacksonville, Ark., native has appeared in 27 straight games, including the Louisiana Tech game. He started five games as a sophomore in 2015.
