Bielema: Allen a game-time decision for A&M
By KURT VOIGTAP Sports Writer
FAYETTEVILLE (AP) - Arkansas coach Bret Bielema says starting quarterback Brandon Allen remains a game-time decision this week as the Razorbacks prepare to host No. 10 Texas A&M.
Allen missed last week's loss to Rutgers with a shoulder injury he suffered a week earlier in a win over Southern Mississippi. The sophomore was replaced by junior-college transfer AJ Derby, who was 14 of 26 passing for 137 yards in the 28-24 loss to the Scarlet Knights.
Bielema says he hopes Allen is able to take part in a limited part of practice on Tuesday, and that he's willing to wait until Saturday's game against the Aggies (3-1, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) to decide whether Allen is able to play or not.
The Razorbacks (3-1) lost 58-10 to Texas A&M last season.Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
