Razorbacks lose WR Keon Hatcher (foot) for at least six weeks
Adding further injury to insult, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema announced Monday that Razorbacks’ senior receiver — and No. 1 outside target — Keon Hatcher has been lost to a foot injury:
Bielema: Keon Hatcher is having surgery this afternoon and will be out a minimum of six weeks

While the Hogs were thought to be a run-heavy offense coming into the season, their quarterback Brandon Allen leads the SEC in passing yards and Hatcher is the league’s leading receiver after two weeks of play. Hatcher also led the team in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns in 2014.
With the injury to Hatcher coming on the heels of the team’s embarrassing loss to Toledo, will Arkansas return to its roots and once again become a running team? First-year offensive coordinator Dan Enos may find himself on the hot seat sooner than later if something doesn’t change quickly for a team thought to be in contention for the SEC title this season.
