FAYETTEVILLE, Arkansa (AP) Arkansas coach Bret Bielema says quarterback Brandon Allen remains questionable for the Razorbacks' game Saturday against Texas A&M.
Allen, who earned the starting job in the preseason, injured his throwing shoulder two weeks ago against Southern Mississippi and missed last week's loss to Rutgers. The sophomore was replaced by junior-college transfer AJ Derby.
Bielema says Allen has practiced this week, but he has only thrown short-distance passes with a lighter football to practice his throwing motion.
Without Allen, the Razorbacks (3-1) lost 28-24 to the Scarlet Knights last week - a game they led 24-7 in the second half. Derby, who spent last season in junior college after transferring from Iowa, was 14-of-26 passing for 137 yards.
The No. 10 Aggies (3-1, 0-1 Southeastern Conference) beat Arkansas 58-10 last season.
