Here's the recap from UA:

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The University of Arkansas football team continued spring practice Tuesday afternoon inside Walker Pavilion.

After practice offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney spoke with the media about how today’s practice went.

"We spent a lot of time in meetings on Saturday after the scrimmage to address some minor issues," Coach Chaney said. "We had a good day today so I think we fixed those things."

Coach Chaney also commented on the overall effort on the practice field.

"The kids are playing hard," Coach Chaney said. "I can't say enough about their attitude. They have been working hard and it's been exciting to watch them grow and continue to develop."

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 Razorbacks Stadium. Admission to the game is free.
