FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Outstanding senior tight end Cheyenne O’Grady was injured in practice and now he’s set to undergo surgery.
As a junior, O’Grady caught 30 passes for 400 yards and six touchdowns. That came despite missing the first two games suspended and then not catching a pass until the Texas A&M game in Week 5.
O’Grady was challenged by Chad Morris last week, but this week Morris heaped praise on O’Grady for the way he has responded to some adversity.
Arkansas opens the season on Aug. 31 against Portland State. Then they go to Ole Miss before returning home for Colorado State and San Jose State games.
Arkansas has some other tight ends on the team including senior Chase Harrell, true freshman Hudson Henry, junior Grayson Gunter, junior walk-on Blake Kern and senior walk-on Trey Purifoy.
