The Razorbacks coach says sophomore linebacker Otha Peters, senior tight end Austin Tate and senior receiver Demetrius Wilson each sustained injuries this week - with Wilson's a season-ending knee ligament tear.
Peters will miss 6-8 weeks with a broken arm, while Tate is expected to miss approximately six weeks.
Bielema says Wilson, who was listed as a first-team receiver following the spring, will redshirt and return next season. Peters, who had 32 tackles last season as a freshman, could return by the time Arkansas opens Southeastern Conference against Texas A&M on Sept. 28.
Tate had 14 catches for 164 yards last season and was listed as the Razorbacks second-team tight end after the spring.
