According to an Arkansas sports talk radio host, Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson will sit out Saturday's game against Alabama.

Wilson was hospitalized after suffering a head injury in the Razorbacks' loss to Louisiana-Monroe last weekend. Arkansas wouldn't expound upon the extent of Wilson's injury, but most assume it was a concussion.

Despite it being a marquee game against Alabama, Wilson should sit out Saturday's game given his past concussion history. Wilson was concussed in September of last year.

In place of Wilson, Arkansas will start either redshirt freshman Brandon Allen or junior Brandon Mitchell. Allen replaced Wilson against ULM last week. Even if Wilson does end up playing Saturday, expect a heavy workload for running backs Dennis Johnson and Knile Davis. Regardless, though, it's going to be difficult for Arkansas to beat Alabama.
