Arkansas Razorbacks running back Jonathan Williams will miss the entire 2015 regular season after suffering foot injury during Saturday’s scrimmage. Arkansas coach Bret Bielema announced on Monday that the injury will require surgery.
“I have no doubt that Jonathan will come back stronger than ever. Anyone that knows Jonathan Williams knows this is just another opportunity for him to prove the man of character and substance that he really is,” said coach Bret Bielema in a school release.
“It’s an unfortunate injury to a great young man, but we are in the process of gathering as much information as possible. There are short- and long-term impacts of how he proceeds and we want to make sure he does what’s best for him and his family, and his career beyond Arkansas.”
Williams led the Razorbacks in rushing yards (1,190) and scored 12 touchdowns in 2014.
