Arkansas TE probable for Mississippi State

Arkansas' has not had any trouble continuing to put up big numbers even without leading receiver Greg Childs, out for the season with a patellar tendon injury.  Since Childs was injured in the fourth quarter against Vanderbilt, the Razorbacks scored 41 on South Carolina in Columbia, then dropped 58 on the helpless UTEP Miners.  But heading into a crucial two-game stretch to finish the season, quarterback Ryan Mallett will need as many healthy weapons as he can get.  After leaving UTEP game in the third quarter with a shoulder injury, there was some question as to the health of tight end D.J. Williams.  

Head coach Bobby Petrino said Williams' status is probable for Saturday's game at Mississippi State.  Williams is second on the team in receptions behind the injured Childs, so having the senior tight end on the field is a big boost for the Mallett and the Arkansas offense.  After Mississippi State, the Razorbacks host LSU for their regular season finale.  Their chances for the SEC Championship Game have come and gone, but the Razorbacks are high enough in the BCS Standings to make a case for the Sugar Bowl should they win out.  Granted, taking down Mississippi State in Starkville and LSU is a tall order for this Razorbacks squad.  But considering their only losses have come against Auburn and Alabama, there is no reason to think that it is not out of their reach.

 Hope D. J. Is ready to go, but if he isn't we do have an excellent back up behind him in Chris Gragg, who is probably the only TE in the Nation with 4.4 speed.

What gives edsallforprez?   What did your post have to do with the artice you posted against?

Was it something to do with the blog saying TEXAS A&M was returning to greatness - even when they lost to Arkansas this year?  That was the only tie I could possibly see.

Are you the writer?  Is this a plug for yourself?

Just wondering.
