Here's the recap from UA:

FAYETTEVILLE - The University of Arkansas football team continued spring practice Tuesday with a workout inside Walker Pavilion.

After practice, Arkansas offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney spoke to the media. He talked about the players' attitude in spring practice thus far.

"The attitude has been awesome," Coach Chaney said. "These guys are working hard. They are listening and responding. They are asking good questions and I enjoy being around them."

Chaney also talked about the team's work ethic on the practice field.

"There are players that have great motors," Coach Chaney said. "They go out and play hard. It is fun to see how they attack the game. You want to surround yourself with as many of those kids as you can possibly get.

Practice continues this week with workouts scheduled for Thursday and Saturday. Arkansas' spring practices culminate in the Red-White Spring Game, sponsored by Cox, on April 20 at 2 p.m. inside Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Admission to the game is free.
