Bobby Petrino 'Resting Comfortably' After Motorcycle Crash, Says Arkansas AD Jeff Long

Less than 24 hours after Arkansas Razorbacks head football coach Bobby Petrino was involved in a single-vehicle motorcycle accident, he's said to be doing fine by motorcycle accident standards. University of Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long visited Petrino and his wife Becky in the hospital on Monday, and tweeted out a message indicating that Petrino is 'resting comfortably.'

Late this afternoon I had an opportunity to visit with Coach Petrino and Becky at the hospital. Coach Petrino is resting comfortably and is encouraged by the progress of his recovery. I know that he is very much looking forward to returning to spring practice at the earliest opportunity.

When details about the accident were sparse in the morning many feared that the eventual news about Petrino's condition would be bad, but it looks like he's going to be back on the sidelines in no time.
