Following yesterday practice, Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said that he has no new information on the status of starting quarterback Brandon Allen. Allen suffered a bruised right shoulder during the first quarter of the Razorbacks’ 24-3 win over Southern Miss last Saturday.
Bielema stated earlier in the week that he would not make the mistake of playing Allen before his injury has healed. If Allen can’t go Saturday at Rutgers, backup quarterback AJ Derby will be called upon to lead the Hogs. Derby completed just four-of-six passes for 36 yards against the Golden Eagles as Arkansas relied on its power run game to engineer the victory.
This week’s opponent, Rutgers, ranks fifth nationally in run defense, having allowed just 178 yards on 90 carries (1.98 ypc) through three games.
