FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino said
leading receiver Greg Childs will miss the rest of the season after
suffering a knee injury in a win over Vanderbilt.

Petrino said Childs, who leads the No. 17 Razorbacks (6-2, 3-2
Southeastern Conference) with 46 catches for 659 yards and six
touchdowns, suffered a patella tendon injury but didn't injure any
knee ligaments. The 6-foot-3, 217-pound junior will undergo surgery
later this week and is expected to need four to six months of
recovery time.

Childs injured his knee while making a 17-yard catch early in
the fourth quarter of a 49-14 win over the Commodores. The
reception broke the school record for yards passing in a game for
quarterback Ryan Mallett, who finished with 409 yards passing in
the win.

Arkansas travels to No. 18 South Carolina on Saturday.
