In Tyler Wilson‘s first season as Arkansas’ starter last year, the quarterback was on the receiving end of several brutal hits Unfortunately, that trend has continued into the 2012 season.
The senior suffered what for the time being is only described as an above-the-shoulder injury in the first half of the No. 8 Razorbacks’ game with Louisiana-Monroe. The injury will force Wilson to the sideline for the duration of the non-conference game.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette‘s Matt Jones wrote that “[o]fficials declined to comment whether Wilson had suffered a concussion.”
At the time of the injury, Wilson, who was replaced by Brandon Allen, had passed for 196 yards and two touchdowns as the Razorbacks jumped out to a 21-7 lead at the half. At the time of this posting, UA was up 28-14 late in the third quarter.
Next weekend, Arkansas will host No. 1 Alabama so, yes, this will be a development we’ll be following throughout the week.
