Arkansas Razorbacks football coach Bobby Petrino was involved in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident Sunday night, and was kept overnight at an area hospital. But he should make a full recovery from his injuries, according to Joe Schad. This is the first report that's been made of his health following the wreck:

Petrino is an experienced motorcycle rider, having been around bikes since he was a kid. We don't know yet what caused the accident.
Schad also says Petrino expects to return to practice soon. Arkansas is about halfway through its spring football period.
