Jake Bequette still questionable for Hogs

Arkansas defensive end Jake Bequette appears to be getting better, but he still hasn't been cleared to play for the Razorbacks this weekend.

The senior has been battling a hamstring injury that kept him out of the Razorbacks' past two games.

Head coach Bobby Petrino said Wednesday that Bequette practiced Tuesday, but hadn't heard from the trainer if there was any ill effect from the practice on Bequette's hamstring. Petrino isn't sure if Bequette will play against Texas A&M at Cowboys Stadium Saturday.

"Certainly, that would help us if he was back ready to play for us this weekend, but I think it's still real questionable right now if he'll be ready or not," Petrino said.

Arkansas will also be without junior defensive end Tenarius Wright is expected to miss four to six weeks after breaking his arm in Saturday’s loss to Alabama. That means the Hogs could potentially be without their top defensive ends this weekend. Arkansas has some depth at defensive end, but it's young depth. Expect freshman Trey Flowers to get more snaps this weekend.

Getting pressure on Texas A&M quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be important, as the Aggies are averaging 310.7 passing yards a game and are scoring 37 points a contest.
