Just a few days after losing linebacker Alonzo Highsmith for the season, the Arkansas Razorbacks have suffered yet another devastating blow on the defensive side of the ball. Matt Jones of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the Razorbacks have now learned that senior defensive end Tenarius Wright will also miss the remainder of the season.
Arkansas defensive end Tenarius Wright will miss the rest of the 2012 season with a shoulder injury, John L. Smith said.

Wright was tied with Highsmith for the team’s lead in tackles with 54 on the season. As Arkansas fans have realized by now, the team just can’t seem to catch a break. They entered the season with hopes of a national title win but can now only hope that they can finish with a winning record.
Arkansas will look to build on their momentum after the recent win over SEC rivals Auburn and look to build a nice little winning streak within the conference as they face off against the Kentucky Wildcats and Ole Miss Rebels over the next two weeks.
The Razorbacks currently sit at 2-3 on the season and hold a 1-2 record within the SEC.
