Arkansas senior wide receiver Lucas Miller will undergo surgery to repair a broken collarbone. He is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after injuring his shoulder while diving to catch a pass during Thursday’s practice.
Miller, the university confirmed, will have surgery on Friday.
It’s an unfortunate setback for Miller, who had impressed coaches this fall with the way he’d come back from offseason knee surgery. He missed spring practice to recover from the injury he suffered in the season finale against LSU.
Miller caught 30 passes for 490 yards and two touchdowns last season. He’d established himself as one of the team’s most reliable pass catchers and at 6-foot-3, 205-pounds was a big target for quarterbacks.
Against Mississippi State in 2008, Miller caught 10 passes for 201 yards and 1 touchdown.
Arkansas has seen three players seriously injured so far in camp. Cornerback Isaac Madison (knee) and tight end Chris Gragg (ankle) are out of the season.
