 FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Arkansas running back Michael Smith was suspended for the team's opener against Western Illinois on Saturday night for improper use of scholarship textbooks.
A school spokesman said the matter involved an NCAA secondary violation, which the school has turned in.
Freshman Dennis Johnson started at running back for the Razorbacks, who are trying to replace stars Darren McFadden and Felix Jones from last year's team. Smith, a junior, has gained 6.8 yards per carry in limited duty the last two years. He was atop the depth chart before being suspended.
