QB Tyler Wilson listed as “game-time decision”

Even though ESPN wrote a news piece, and Arkansas sportstalk radio host Bo Mattingly tweeted that Tyler Wilson would not play against Alabama, Arkansas head coach John L. Smith has decided to take a different approach to the situation.

Smith, who has been playing matters “close to the vest” all week, simply said (this morning) that Tyler Wilson is a “game-time decision” according to a statement released by the school.

Wilson, who suffered a concussion last week against Louisiana-Monroe, is unfortunately no stranger to head trauma. Wilson fell victim to a concussion last season, but returned to play the following week.

If Wilson is indeed out, Arkansas will either turn to redshirt freshman Brandon Allen, who received significant playing time against
, or junior Brandon Mitchell, who has played both quarterback and wide receiver for the Razorbacks during his career.

Logic would suggest that Allen would be awarded the start, but a package where Mitchell enters the game at quarterback is certainly not out of the question. Given the overall scope of the contest, and what a victory would mean to Arkansas’ season, the Razorbacks would be more than willing to entertain a series of "smoke and mirrors" at the quarterback position.
