Arkansas running back Chase Hayden didn't play after halftime of Arkansas' 52-20 loss to Auburn after suffering a lower-leg injury that likely will sideline him "a significant amount of time," Coach Bret Bielema said.

The freshman suffered the injury in the second quarter. Bielema declined to comment further on Hayden's injury, but he indicated Hayden will undergo testing.

Hayden had Arkansas' two most productive plays of the first half, breaking free for a 40-yard gain and zipping for 23 yards after reeling in a screen pass.

The 5-10, 191-pounder has run for a team-high 326 yards on 5.3 yards per carry, the best average among Arkansas' top three backs.

    Poor Chase and poor Bert. The injuries continue. The beatings will continue.
