Listed as the starting ‘jack’ defensive end on Arkansas’ depth chart, he played 42 snaps in the Razorbacks’ season-opening win over Rice. It is the third straight year Gerald, a junior college transfer, has been injured.

He had decided to come back for a bonus season granted because of COVID.

Zach Williams, according to the depth chart for this week’s game, is expected to move into a starting role for the game with Texas.
