Arkansas Razorbacks head coach Bret Bielema announced on Sunday that senior running back Jonathan Williams will miss an extended period of time after suffering a foot injury on Saturday.
“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 Bielema. “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.”
“This is no doubt a tough moment, but I know through my faith and hard work that I will make a full recovery,” said Williams.
Williams has rushed for 2,321 career yards, which is tenth in Razorbacks history. The Texas native led the Hogs with 1,190 yards and tied Alex Collins with 12 rushing touchdowns last season.
