Knile Davis Injured, Carted Off The Field (Twitter Feed)

SI Cover released today...

UPDATED: Thu Aug 11 11:20 PM – Arkansas RB Knile Davis was injured this evening during a scrimmage inside Razorback Stadium. Knile Davis has been picked by many as a strong contender for the Heisman Trophy this season. Most recently, he was featured on the cover of the Sports Illustrated SEC Preview.

Davis became the starting Running Back for the Hogs a few games into the 2010 season and went on to lead the SEC in rushing with 1,322 yards and 13 touchdowns. Davis’ boost to the running game along with the arm of Ryan Mallet helped lead the Razorbacks to their first ever BCS Bowl game. Prior to taking over the starting RB spot last season Davis had been sharing time with Ronnie Wingo and Dennis Johnson.

News hit twitter of his injury at about 6:15pm… This is a developing story and we’ll keep you updated with the latest tweets as they come in.

I guess this is a good time to remind you to follow me on twitter @HogDatabase.

Potential bad news for Hogs. RB Knile Davis injured left leg during scrimmage. He was carted off the field a few minutes ago. More later.

The official Razorback feed reminds you that you can now buy Basketball tickets. I’m sure the timing was just a coincidence…

Razorback Basketball season ticket renewals are now available online.

I'm hopeful KnileDavis is a lot less hurt than he sounded after injury happened. He sounded very much in pain. Awful.

Guess the whole don't report injuries during practice policy went out the window with Knile Davis getting hurt today. Extent unknown.

Did we mention that it looks like Texas A&M is headed to the SEC?

Our take on this A&M-to-SEC stuff:Knile Davis got hurt today. Who cares about Texas A&M?

I’m not sure why or how a Bama fan would have better info than the AR Media, but…

I'm hearing from reliable sources that Knile Davis has an ACL injury. Not sure extent.

No official comment from Ark: re Knile Davis injury. It's left leg and he could put no pressure on it. Ankle-foot-knee hard to tell

Arkansas refuses to talk about Davis. Garrick McGee declined to answer questions. Media relations wouldn't allow players to answer either.

Even a question about "depth at running back" was shot down by media relations folks. So, no concrete update for time being.

IF Davis misses time with an injury, the Razorbacks are down to Ronnie Wingo and Dennis Johnson. Broderick Green tore his ACL in spring.

My backing of Arkansas as a legit national title contender will change if the news on Knile Davis' inury is bad.

worse Razorback RB screaming after getting hurt that I recall was Robin Smith in late 1970s during a practice. Broken kneecap, I believe.

Deep thoughts about alot of things.... Never take anything for granted....

Things aren’t looking good…

Hawgs Illustrated sources indicate that Davis' injury is a major one to his leg and he will be out a significant amount of time this season.

@ Regarding KD's ankle - I just read the words "shattered." Ugghh.

Hope Knile Davis injury isn't as bad as it seems initially. He's a stud RB. Hogs need him badly.

Arkansas was down a running back prior to Davis' injury after Broderick Green tore his ACL in the spring.
