Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson left the Razorbacks' game against Louisiana-Monroe after suffering what the school is eloquently referring to as an injury "above the shoulders," which is about the strangest way possible to classify an injury.
Razorback Nation will have plenty interest in Wilson's health in the coming days — Arkansas plays host to No. 1 Alabama in a marquee matchup of SEC powers next Saturday. His health becomes a little more urgent after Arkansas was upset by Louisiana-Monroe without Wilson available in the second half and overtime.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reported that Razorback officials refused to comment on whether Wilson suffered a concussion. Given the increased sensitivity about concussions, Arkansas can't rush him back if he isn't symptom free - if in fact he does have a concussion.
Redshirt freshman Brandon Allen is Wilson's backup, and given what Alabama did to Michigan's Denard Robinson last week, it's an understatement to say that isn't a defense you want to expose a rookie to.
