Monk underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday to repair a small tear that occurred during practice Thursday, trainer Dean Weber said. He was initially diagnosed with a bone bruise.
Monk will miss the Razorbacks' home opener on Sept. 1 against Troy, Weber said. The Razorbacks are off the following week, travel to play Alabama on Sept. 15, and host Kentucky on Sept. 22.
Weber said there was no ligament damage to Monk's knee.
``He will be on an aggressive rehabilitation program emphasizing early motion,'' Weber said.
Monk caught 50 passes for 962 yards and a school-record 11 touchdowns last season. He also holds the school mark of 24 career touchdown receptions.
