Edit: Report That Tyler Wilson Broke Collarbone Retracted

Edit: The radio network has retracted the report and Wilson's status is unclear.

Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson is reportedly out for several weeks after sustaining a broken collarbone sometime near halftime during Arkansas's overtime defeat to Louisiana Monroe. Pat Smith of 94.5 FM Radio filed the initial report.

Wilson had completed 55% of his passes up to that point in the game against Louisiana Monroe, but also had piled up 197 passing yards for over 9.9 yards per pass attempt while throwing two touchdowns and an interception.

Arkansas must now start Brandon Allen at quarterback, who had an inauspicious debut last week. Allen completed six of 21 passes for 85 yards and a rather feeble 4.0 passing yards per attempt in relief of Wilson today. That offensive stagnancy sure helped afford Louisiana Monroe ample offensive opportunities to come back and rally from a 21 point second half deficit.

Allen will be starting at quarterback when Arkansas takes on No. 1 Alabama next week.
