Arkansas Should Be at Full Strength Against Alabama

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino says
receiver Greg Childs will play this week at No. 3 Alabama.

Childs missed No. 14 Arkansas' game against Troy following the death of his grandmother last week. The senior was leading the Razorbacks in receiving last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury in the eighth game against Vanderbilt.

He's been slow to recover and had two catches for 29 yards before missing last week's game. Petrino also says senior receiver Jarius Wright and senior defensive end Jake Bequette are better after missing the game against the Trojans with injuries.

Petrino says Wright worked out Sunday after injuring his knee against New Mexico. He says Bequette's status for practice Tuesday isn't certain, but he has made "tremendous improvement" while recovering from a hamstring injury.
