Arkansas RB Jones sits out practice with deep thight bruise

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Felix Jones sat out practice Tuesday
after suffering a deep thigh bruise in the Razorbacks' game against
Tennessee last weekend.

Coach Houston Nutt said he won't know until later this week if
Jones will be able to play in Saturday's game against Mississippi
State.

"He's very, very sore and we just won't know for a few days,"
Nutt said.

Both Arkansas and Mississippi State enter the game with a 6-4
record on the season -- and both are vying for a bowl game.

"There's nothing like winning," Nutt said. "There's nothing
like a celebrated locker room and that's exactly our intention. The
way we practiced today showed us that our guys really care and
they're working toward that goal."

Kickoff is at 1 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
