FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas football coach Bret Bielema says receiver Keon Hatcher will miss 4-6 weeks of offseason work after follow-up surgery on the same foot that cost him most of last season.

Despite the surgery, Bielema says the senior is expected to be fully recovered when Arkansas begins preseason camp in August.

The 6-foot-2, 218-pound Hatcher played in only two games last season for the Razorbacks. He caught 13 passes for 198 yards and a pair of touchdowns before injuring his left foot in a loss to Toledo. He had 43 catches for 558 yards and six touchdowns as a junior in 2014.

Bielema says Hatcher’s most-recent surgery was not the result of any new fracture or injury and that doctors did a bone graft to strengthen the foot.
