FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino returned to practice Tuesday, hours after being released from the hospital following a weekend motorcycle crash.
Petrino, speaking for the first time since his Sunday night accident, arrived at Razorback Stadium wearing a neck brace and with multiple abrasions and red spots showing on his nose and face.
The 51-year-old says he was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, which occurred on Arkansas Highway 16 in Madison County - about 20 miles southeast of Fayetteville. State law does not require an adult rider wear a helmet.
Petrino says he noticed the sun in his eyes moments before the accident. He also says he broke four ribs in his upper chest and cracked the outside of the C-2 vertebra in his back.
