FAYETTEVILE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson says he feels much better after missing the loss to Alabama with a concussion, and he is optimistic of playing this weekend against Rutgers.
The Razorbacks (1-2) lost 52-0 to the No. 1 Crimson Tide on Saturday without Wilson - last seasons' first-team All-Southeastern Conference quarterback.
Wilson's injury, which was suffered during the first half of a loss to Louisiana-Monroe, had previously been referred to as a head injury. The senior has now acknowledged he suffered a concussion, causing headaches and other symptoms last week.
Wilson says he won't risk his "complete health" to play, but he promises to play when he feels good enough.
Arkansas hosts the Scarlet Knights (3-0) on Saturday.
