FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas running back Knile Davis is eager to prove his recovery is complete following an ankle injury that cost him all of last season.
Davis led all Southeastern Conference running backs with 1,322 rushing yards in 2010, but he hasn't faced contact since he broke his left ankle during a preseason scrimmage last August.
The junior has spent much of the offseason preparing for his return, setting a personal best with a 570-pound squat during workouts. He went through spring practice without facing contact, but he says he's ready for live action when the Razorbacks begin fall camp on Aug. 1.
Arkansas was 11-2 last season, and it enters this season with a new coach in John L. Smith following Bobby Petrino's firing in April.
