Three days after concussion, Mallett returns to practice

On Sunday, head coach Bobby Petrino was hoping Ryan Mallett would be able to return to practice Tuesday.

Today, that hope turned into a nice little reality for Arkansas.

Declaring himself 100 percent, the Razorbacks quarterback was indeed on the field for practice Tuesday, three days after suffering a first-half concussion against Auburn.

Not only did the junior say that he expects to play Saturday against Ole Miss, but he also attempted to shoot down speculation that he injured his shoulder on the same play he was concussed.

“My left shoulder is not bad,” Mallett said according to the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. “I hit my head pretty good off the ground. That’s what happened. There can be all this speculation, whatever. It happens here and it’s always going to be like that.”

    So glad he’s okay- altho about the only bright and shining part of Saturday for Hog fans was the play of our young little qb who took Ryan’s place.

    Mallett ought to get a 2nd opinion before coming back so soon and risking his career. Trying to win the Heisman isn’t worth losing millions in a future pro contract. He’s draft eligible and projected in the top 10-15 draft picks.
