FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) A year and a half after he broke his neck in a game, Arkansas running back Rawleigh Williams suffered another injury scare when he was taken away in an ambulance from a Razorbacks practice on Saturday.

Players from Big 12 slow to go in draft

Let's just say the phone isn't ringing off the hook for Big 12 players so far in the NFL draft.
