If Arkansas’ going to make a comeback in the second half against the Tigers, they’re going to have to do it without their All-American candidate at quarterback.
Shortly before the start of the third quarter, head coach Bobby Petrino said Ryan Mallett has been diagnosed with a concussion and will not return. Needless to say, his status for the Razorbacks’ next game is unknown.
Mallett apparently suffered the injury during the second quarter on a play where he was driven to the ground — very legally — by an Auburn defender following a pass.
Tyler Wilson replaced Mallett and threw a touchdown pass on the series after the starter appeared to suffer the injury.
Auburn currently leads 30-21 with just under 11 minutes left in the third.
Oh, and Cam Newton has 16 carries for 186 yards in just over two quarters of work. Can you say Heisman frontrunner if this game holds form?
