FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas faces uncertainty at quarterback this week as it prepares to host No. 1 Alabama on Saturday.
The Razorbacks (1-1) lost starting quarterback Tyler Wilson with a head injury in last week?s stunning loss to Louisiana-Monroe. Coach John L. Smith said the first-team All-Southeastern Conference quarterback still had "grogginess" two days later and hasn?t been cleared by doctors yet to practice.
The Razorbacks are likely to turn to either junior Brandon Mitchell or redshirt freshman Brandon Allen.
Mitchell has spent most of this season playing wide receiver, but he is splitting time this week in practice with Allen, who struggled in the second half of last week?s loss.
Whoever plays will face a difficult task against the Crimson Tide (2-0).
