GATORS: Will be without running back Matt Jones for the remainder of the year.

Jones had surgery Mon­day morning to repair torn meniscus in his left knee. Jones injured his knee during Saturday’s 17-6 loss at Louisiana State.

“Very unfortunate,” coach Will Muschamp said. “I hate it for Matt. He’s a great young man. To go through what he’s been through … and then to have this setback is just disheartening for all of us.”

Jones rushed 79 times for 339 yards and two touchdowns this season.

ARKANSAS: Coach Bret Bielema says defensive tackle Robert Thomas will miss the remainder of the season after breaking his left leg in a loss to South Carolina.
