Arkansas freshman RB Chase Hayden (leg) could miss an extended amount of time.

Hayden was injured in Saturday's loss to Auburn, exiting stage left after registering a pair of carries for 42 yards and one catch for 23 yards. After the game, Razorbacks HC Bret Bielema said, "I don’t want to comment on Chase until I know for sure," but did offer that the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder is dealing with an injury to the lower leg. The true freshman has rushed for 338 yards and four touchdowns for the current campaign. Further information as to his playing status moving forward should emerge in the coming days.

Arkansas running back David Williams ran for 86 yards on 14 carries in a 52-20 loss to Auburn on Saturday.

Arkansas was woefully ineffective against the Auburn defense on Saturday, but Williams was able to have a decent game despite the struggles of the Razorbacks' offense. Devwah Whaley was able to find the end zone, but Williams (6'1/229) was the much more effective back on Saturday. The two should continue to split carries for Arkansas next week against Ole Miss.
Oct 21 - 11:31 PM

Arkansas HC Bret Bielema said that senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) will not start Saturday's game against Auburn.

Allen is in line to miss his second consecutive game barring a late change. Cole Kelley will roll versus the Tigers in his place on Saturday. There is no current timetable for Allen's return to the field, but he could potentially reemerge against Ole Miss in one week.

Arkansas redshirt freshman QB Cole Kelly is likely to earn his second-straight start on Saturday against Auburn.

Kelley would get the start in place of senior Austin Allen (shoulder) who is unlikely to play on Saturday. The 6-foot-7, 268-pound quarterback has completed 56 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and two interceptions.

Arkansas HC Bret Bielema says senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) has a "real possibility" of returning Saturday against Auburn.

Allen missed last Saturday's game against Alabama. "There’s a real possibility he plays on Saturday," Bielema said. Though Allen didn't practice Tuesday, Bielema said he's made good strides this week in returning from the injury to his throwing shoulder. If Allen can't go, redshirt freshman Cole Kelley will make his second consecutive start.

Arkansas HC Bret Bielema said that Arkansas senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) is probably "a couple of weeks away."

Allen sat out this past weekend's blowout loss to Alabama due to a shoulder injury suffered against South Carolina the previous Saturday. Cole Kelley worked in his place against the Tide and will likely draw the start against Auburn this week unless Allen is able to make significant progress in the lead up.
Oct 17 - 8:03 PM

Arkansas senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) is not expected to play in next week's game against Alabama on Saturday.

Allen wasn't able to play against Alabama, and he's not expected back for their contest with the Tigers. In his place, the Razorbacks will start redshirt freshman Cole Kelley.
Oct 16 - 6:07 PM

Arkansas redshirt freshman WR Jordan Jones caught four passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 41-9 loss to Alabama.

Jones (6'1/185) scored from three yards out in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, but the game was well out of reach by that point. The redshirt freshman wideout was largely a non-factor early in the season, but has begun to see a few more looks as the weeks have wound on. He's surpassed 70 yards receiving in two of his last three games and has logged 11 catches in that space. He managed just two catches through the first two contests of the campaign.
Oct 14 - 10:37 PM

Arkansas redshirt freshman QB Cole Kelley is expected to start against Alabama on Saturday.

That's because a shoulder injury is expected to keep starting senior QB Austin Allen on the sidelines. Kelley (6'7/268) is a jumbo pocket-passer who was a four-star ESPN recruit in the 2016 cycle. He's thrown for 186 yards and three touchdowns on 18 attempts while adding 42 rushing yards in relief of Allen this fall. This will be Kelley's first career start. Good luck, kid.
Oct 14 - 12:54 PM

Arkansas senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) is not expected to start against Alabama on Saturday.

Hogs HC Bret Bielema expressed optimism that Allen could play earlier this week, but according to reports, that won't come to pass. Allen is nursing a shoulder injury sustained in last Saturday's loss to South Carolina. While an MRI indicated that it wasn't a serious injury, Allen looks like he'll need this afternoon off. With Alabama's defense on the menu, that's probably a good idea. Cole Kelley will start instead.
Oct 14 - 12:41 PM

Arkansas HC Bret Bielema believes that senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) will start against Alabama on Saturday.

My guess is Austin Allen will give it a go and see what happens in first half," Bielema said on his radio show. That may not be a ringing endorsement, but if forced to give a designation based on his statement, we'd say Allen is probable for Saturday against the Crimson Tide. If he can't go, redshirt freshman Cole Kelley will likely be behind center.
Oct 12 - 9:16 PM

Arkansas HC Bret Bielema said that he is "optimistic" that redshirt senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) will be able to play against Alabama on Saturday.

Allen is nursing a shoulder injury sustained in Saturday's loss to South Carolina. Subsequent MRIs have come back negative. His availability may well come down to a matter of pain tolerance. Redshirt freshman Cole Kelley would start in his place against the Tide if he can't play on Saturday.
Oct 12 - 6:51 PM

Arkansas redshirt senior QB Austin Allen (shoulder) said that his MRI came back negative.

Allen was forced to take an early leave from Saturday's loss to South Carolina due to a shoulder injury. While the clean MRI is an encouraging sign, the redshirt senior said on Tuesday that he is still feeling some soreness. He hopes to be able to play against Alabama this weekend. If he can't give it a go, redshirt freshman Cole Kelley would have the unenviable task of stepping in against the Tide.
Oct 10 - 9:12 PM

Arkansas redshirt senior QB Austin Allen is expected to play against Alabama despite dealing with an undisclosed injury.

Bret Bielema suggested the injury pertains to Allen's shoulder issue dating back to the loss to South Carolina. Allen's 2017 season has been a disappointment, but the Razorbacks offensive line might be a major factor in that. Cole Kelley stepped in for Allen in the past and will do so again if needed in the future.

Arkansas redshirt senior QB Austin Allen (undisclosed) is questionable for Saturday's game against Alabama.

Allen (6'1/215) was unable to continue last week after suffering the undisclosed injury to South Carolina. Razorbacks HC Bret Bielema did say that the injury wasn't a concussion, but offered nothing more. If Allen is unable to go, backup Cole Kelley will have the ginormous task of figuring out the Alabama defense.
