A day after returning to practice and impressing teammate Chris Smith — “… his throws were sharp and everything like that, so he’s going to be ready to go Saturday” – Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson missed yesterday’s session. Asked why his star couldn’t go on Thursday, interim coach John L. Smith simply said: “He was busy.”
The coach also told ArkansasNews.com that Wilson had not suffered a setback from the concussion-like symptoms he experienced after taking a hit to the head last weekend against Louisiana-Monroe. So that much is positive.
So where do things stand for tomorrow’s game against #1 Alabama?
“I’ve got no answers,” Smith said. “Nothing for you today.” He then said “a decision has to be made” and suggested Wilson would need to be cleared by this morning at the latest if he’s to play tomorrow.
Backup QBs Brandon Allen and Brandon Mitchell have gotten plenty of reps in practice this week should Wilson’s return to action be delayed by doctors.
