Wilson's injury marked the point where everything started to go wrong for Arkansas: he threw for 563 yards and five touchdowns in a blowout win over Jacksonville State and the beginning of the team's game against Louisiana-Monroe.
After his injury, the Razorbacks watched their lead against the Warhawks evaporate, eventually losing in overtime, losing a top 10 rating to drop out of the rankings completely, and getting shut out 52-0 by Alabama. In six quarters without Wilson, Arkansas has only managed 10 points.
The senior's return will be major for a team hoping to bounce back from multiple embarrassments facing off against an undefeated Rutgers squad. The first-team, all-SEC quarterback appears to be his team's only hope for doing anything offensively. His availability could help end a dreadful stretch for a team expected to be one of the SEC's best squads.
