FAYETTEVILLE-- The most common injury on Arkansas' football team in recent years has hit another couple of players.

Junior linebacker Josh Harris and freshman offensive lineman Dalton Wagner went down with foot injuries in the past week. They join a long list of Razorbacks with foot injuries the last three years, including Jamario Bell, Dre Greenlaw, Keon Hatcher, Cody Hollister, Alexy Jean-Baptiste, Kody Walker and Jonathan Williams.

Harris, as Hawgs247 reported Thursday, suffered his injury during last week's scrimmage. It requires surgery and he'll be out for 10 weeks, head coach Bret Bielema said Saturday.

Wagner's injury is not as serious and won't require surgery, as the bone isn't broken. He got hurt during the week and will miss 4-6 weeks. At that point, the coaching staff will make a decision on whether or not to redshirt him.

That string of foot injuries is eye-opening and been the focus of many conspiracy theories. When asked about it again Saturday, Bielema said they had researched it and there wasn't a single common element to each one.

Arkansas athletic trainer Matt Summers pulled up injury data from the NFL and found that most foot injuries occurred with wide receivers and linebackers, a trend the Razorbacks have seen on their team. Six of the nine players mentioned above played one of those two positions.

Bielema also mentioned that the injuries themselves weren't all alike.

"There’s a difference between a Lisfranc and a fifth metatarsal," Bielema said. "So there’s all kinds of different things that factor into it.

"I think today’s athletes are bigger, stronger, faster and everybody wants that shoe to get smaller and lighter. I think there’s a common give there."

Here are a few other players dealing with injuries that Bielema mentioned Saturday:

-Junior River Warnock, a walk-on wide receiver from North Little Rock, joined the 105-man roster after fall camp began and has now left the roster before the end of fall camp. He "severely" pulled his hamstring and will be out until at least the start of the fall semester on Aug. 21.

-Another non-scholarship wide receiver dealing with a hamstring injury is junior Gary Cross. The junior college transfer was limited Saturday after sitting out the last two days. He had been running with the second-team offense and is expected to be "full-go" on Monday.

-Senior Jake Raulerson got "rolled up on" during inside drill Thursday and wasn't quite ready to go Saturday. Bielema said he expects him to return next week. Raulerson has been sort of Arkansas' sixth man on the offensive line, capable of backing up all five positions.

-Sophomore Brandon Martin was dressed out, but did not scrimmage during the open portion Saturday. He has been dealing with a soft-tissue injury in his back.

-A couple days ago, redshirt freshman Briston Guidry went home to be with his sick grandmother, who has since passed away. He'll be back earlier next week.
