FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas has lost its last five games against Alabama, and it enters Saturday with the prospect of facing the No. 1 Crimson Tide without starting quarterback Tyler Wilson.
Wilson's availability for the Razorbacks (1-1) is uncertain after he suffered a head injury during the first half of last week's shocking loss to Louisiana-Monroe. Wilson didn't practice Thursday, and Arkansas coach John L. Smith says last year's first-team All-Southeastern Conference quarterback will be a game-time decision on Saturday.
The Razorbacks were expected to contend for the SEC West this season, but right now that doesn't seem realistic.
Arkansas has little time to recover. Alabama (2-0) defeated Western Kentucky 35-0 last week. Quarterback A.J. McCarron had four touchdown passes in the win.
