J.D. Notae and Abayomi Iyiola haven’t been taking part in practices or training sessions, but it is not related to the current coronavirus, according to a press release from Arkansas Communications on Thursday.

The assumption these days whenever any player is out of practices leaps immediately to the current health pandemic, but that is not the case with these players.

Both were injured before they came back to campus.

Notae has a wrist injury and Iyiola has a torn ACL in his right knee. Notae and Iyiola both sat out last season due to NCAA transfer rules, but practiced with the team.

Arkansas currently in the training camp portion of the summer, which consists of eight hours of supervised activities. The workouts consist of weight room strength and conditioning activities as well as no more than four hours weekly of on court instruction and skill development.
