Tyler Wilson Dresses, Throws In Practice
Tyler Wilson threw in practice Wednesday for the first time since a head injury sidelined the Razorbacks quarterback last Saturday.
The senior was in uniform with his teammates, graduating from the street clothes he wore during Tuesday’s practice. Head football coach John L. Smith said earlier this week that if Wilson did not practice this week, he would not play this weekend.
Wilson has still not been cleared to play because he is still not allowed to take contact in practice. Arkansas hosts the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
Wilson is listed as day-to-day after taking a blow to the head in the first half of the Razorbacks’ 34-31 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe Saturday in Little Rock. Wilson did not leave the locker room after halftime. He was held overnight in Little Rock after the game for observation, athletic department officials said.
Smith told 5NEWS on Monday that Wilson has concussion-like symptoms.
