FAYETTEVILLE, ARK. (AP) - Arkansas running back Dennis Johnson had to have his wisdom teeth removed, but coach Bobby Petrino is hopeful he’ll be back at full speed on Monday.

Petrino said he usually doesn’t talk about players who aren’t practicing, but he took time Thursday to address Johnson’s situation, saying the junior is "fine" but that he had an infection and will need to recover from the procedure.

Johnson rushed for 369 yards last season and is a mainstay on kick returns for the Razorbacks.
