      Arkansas RB Knile Davis entering NFL draft

      FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Arkansas running back Knile Davis says he will enter the NFL draft and skip his senior year with the Razorbacks.

      Davis announced his decision Tuesday. He led all Southeastern Conference running backs in rushing in 2010 with 1,322 yards. He averaged 147 yards rushing over his final seven games that season, capping off the breakout performance with a 139-yard rushing effort in the Sugar Bowl against Ohio State.

      However, he missed the 2011 season to recover from a broken left ankle. Davis returned this past season and said he was 100% healthy, though he gained only 377 yards rushing - averaging 3.7 yards per carry.
