Arkansas’ Petrino returns to practice
Question of the Day
“The human body is amazing, because each day it heals faster,” Long said. “When I saw him yesterday, he looked markedly different than he does today. He looks much better today.
“I was concerned when (I) initially saw him yesterday. I could tell that he was in pain.”
Long said he advised Petrino to take his time in returning for spring practice. Arkansas practiced Tuesday and will go again Wednesday and Friday this week, and the school’s spring game is scheduled for April 21.
“He’s strong,” Long said. “I guarantee you he’s masking a lot of the pain that he’s in here. But he’s strong and he wanted to be part of the team. He wanted to talk to the team today, and I admire him for it.
“… He’ll rest in between practices.”
Long wished Petrino would have worn a helmet but also pointed out the lack of a state law requiring adult riders to wear one. He called Petrino’s statement that he would wear one in the future a “good decision.”
Petrino said he “absolutely” had no alcohol on Sunday and that he spent the day with his wife, Becky, at an area lake.
“It’s something that really puts a scare in you,” Petrino said. “I can’t say that I’m not going to ride a motorcycle again because I might do that. The ironic thing is we were sitting there in the kitchen, Becky and I, and I had two helmets out. I said, `This one’s going to be really heavy and hot, and then this one makes me look like a cone head. I think I’ll just go with the hat.’
“Obviously, bad call. We wouldn’t have converted the third down.”
Petrino insisted he felt fine mentally Tuesday, despite the breaks, bumps and bruises. He even showed a rare glimpse into his sense of humor.
“I don’t think I have any brain damage, but that’s yet to be seen,” Petrino said. “If I start not punting at all in games or something, then we’ve got a problem.”
