Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams III cleared to play in 2016

The Arkansas Razorbacks lost two talented running backs in Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams to the NFL this season and they are looking to find that next piece for the 2016 season. They just got word that a talented player at the position will be able to play next season.

Last season, freshman running back Rawleigh Williams III suffered a scary injury when he took a hard hit and was taken off the field on a stretcher. He was not able to play the rest of the season, but it was reported that he has been cleared to play in 2016.

This is huge news for the Razorbacks as Williams was a three-star member of their 2015 recruiting class. He rushed for 254 yards and a touchdown in seven games last season and is expected to compete for the starting job.
