The Arkansas football team kicked off its 2017 campaign Thursday night with a dominant 49-7 victory over Florida A&M. Unfortunately for the Razorbacks, it came with a cost.
On Friday, Ryan Pulley, the team’s top cornerback, took to social media to announce he will miss the remainder of the season with an injury.
Pulley suffered a torn right pectoral during the season opener.
The junior defensive back was considered one of the top corners in the SEC, so his presence in the Razorbacks defensive backfield will be greatly missed.
Pulley addressed the injury with a statement on Facebook.

Despite the injury and disappointing end to his 2017 season, Pulley seems to be in positive spirits.
