Keon Hatcher

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – For the second time in nine months Arkansas receiver Keon Hatcher underwent surgery on his left foot.

The senior posted a picture of his foot onto the social media app Snapchat Sunday night. The university has not issued a statement regarding Hatcher but head coach Bret Bielema has a scheduled press conference for Thursday morning.

Hatcher first injured his left foot in a 16-12 loss against Toledo last season and was lost for the remaining 10 games on the Razorbacks schedule. Hatcher was one of three Arkansas players that suffered a broken foot last season. Running back Kody Walker also suffered a broken foot during spring practice but is expected to return before the 2016 season.

Hatcher has 86 career receptions for 1,123 yards and 11 touchdowns  in 35 games with the Razorbacks.
