Last-minute pregame Cotton Bowl drama?
By David Ubben
ARLINGTON, Texas -- We may have a developing situation in pregame.
Arkansas running back Knile Davis and Kansas State receiver/kick returner Tyler Lockett were both dressed for the game and went through warmups.
Davis mostly worked with the second team.
Davis suffered a broken ankle in preseason, and coach Bobby Petrino ruled him out, noting that he still had a screw in his ankle from the original surgery. That's now gone, but Davis hasn't been fully removed from the lineup.
Keep an eye on that.
Lockett, meanwhile, suffered a lacerated kidney earlier this season and was considered out for the season, but he's wearing his No. 16 uniform and joined the team for warm-ups.
Lockett emerged this season as Kansas State's biggest home-run hitter on offense and special teams, where he took two kicks back for scores and became the Big 12's best return man.
Davis led Arkansas in rushing last year with 1,322 yards and 13 touchdowns, but he hasn't played this season.
