Arkansas Razorbacks’ junior forward Marshawn Powell suffered a “severe” knee injury in practice, according to a CBSSports.com report. Powell was a preseason all-SEC second team selection by the coaches.
“It’s a tremendous loss for a guy who’s really worked extremely hard,” Anderson said, according to the report.
Powell suffered the injury in Thursday’s practice, the report says, and his knee will be examined further. Powell has averaged almost 20 points and six rebounds in Arkansas’ first two games.
