FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas begins its first spring practice under coach Bret Bielema on Sunday.

The Razorbacks released their 2013 spring guide in preparation for the start of practice Friday.

A few observations after looking through the roster:

• Tight end Bret Weir is no longer listed on the Arkansas roster. Weir didn't play last year after suffering a head injury in the preseason. It appears he won't return.

• Running back Kody Walker has switched numbers. Walker, who will be limited in spring practice because of last year's broken leg, is now wearing No. 24. He wore No. 40 last year.

• The only other noticable number change is tight end Jeremy Sprinkle, who wore No. 84 last year and is now No. 83.

• Arkansas will have 6 QBs in spring drills: Brandon Allen, Brandon Mitchell, A.J. Derby, Brian Buehner, Taylor Reed, Davis McElroy

• Numbers for the four JUCO transfers on campus: Safety TQ Coleman (No. 7), CB Carroll Washington (No. 21), LB Myke Tavarres (No. 45), OL Jonathan McClure (No. 78)

• Some well-known vacated numbers picked up by new players this spring: Coleman (No. 7 - was Knile Davis), Tavarres (45 - was Alonzo Highsmith), QB A.J. Derby (No. 11 - was Cobi Hamilton), FB Patrick Arinze (No. 33 - was Dennis Johnson)
