  University of Arkansas Coach Sam Pittman kept his comments to a minimum Wednesday regarding tailback Rakeem Boyd's decision to opt out of the final two games of the regular season. Boyd, a 1,133-yard rusher in 2019 when he averaged a healthy 6.1 yards per carry, has not had a successful season. The senior suffered an ankle injury in a Week 2 win at Mississippi State that kept him out of the Auburn game, and he also missed the LSU game Nov. 21 due to coronavirus issues. He's second on the team to Trelon Smith with 309 rushing yards, and he averages 3.8 ypc. Boyd announced he was opting out Tuesday.

"The thoughts on Rakeem, he opted out," Pittman said on the SEC teleconference. "So opting out means that you're concerned about the covid virus and because of those concerns he opted out." Pittman also talked about what the tailback situation looks like now. "The tailback situation looks exactly like it did last [game] against LSU, with adding Dominique Johnson," Pittman said. "So, Trelon Smith will be our starting tailback, and you have T.J. Hammonds and you have Dominque and you have [Donte] Buckner." - Northwest Arkansas Times
