LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Arkansas running back coach Danny Nutt's recovery from brain surgery was going well Thursday. In fact, he might be able to watch the Razorbacks play in the Citrus Bowl on national television.
"He is progressing well," said Jerri Jackson, a spokeswoman for the University Hospital. "There is a television is his room. Whether or not he is able to watch the game will be determined at that time. His prognosis is excellent."
Jackson said five to 10 days is a typical hospital stay for Nutt's type of surgery. She said several friends and fans had called to ask about his condition and recovery. Jackson said family members only had been allowed to visit him after the surgery.
Nutt, 37, underwent three hours of brain surgery Wednesday after doctors found he was bleeding at the brain stem. His brother, head coach Houston Nutt, who is in Orlando, Florida, for the Arkansas-Michigan bowl game, said doctors were optimistic.
Danny Nutt was first hospitalized December 13. He was released, then readmitted for the surgery.
Houston Nutt said he hoped his brother would be able to watch Friday's game on television.
