FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bret Bielema says quarterback Brandon Allen hasn't practiced yet this week and will be a game-time decision at Rutgers.
Allen injured his right shoulder on a first-quarter touchdown run in a win over Southern Mississippi last week. Bielema initially called the injury a bruise, though he has since declined to offer more details about the nature of the injury.
The Razorbacks (3-0) travel to face the Scarlet Knights (2-1) on Saturday, and Bielema says Allen will travel with the team.
If the sophomore is unable to play, Arkansas' players say they have confidence in backup quarterback AJ Derby. The junior, who played last season in junior college after transferring from Iowa, led the Razorbacks past the Golden Eagles last week in place of Allen.
