Probably a reaction to the news that Nova is going to play.
Great, this game will feature two QBs who are at risk of serious injury.

If it was BA's non throwing shoulder he would have been back in the game.  I wouldn't be surprised if he plays, but it will probably still be sore if he does.

Hogs: Injured QB Allen improving, may play
by Nate Allen
September 18, 2013
FAYETTEVILLE - Arkansas starting third-year sophomore quarterback Brandon Allen is improving from his shoulder injury and will travel to Piscataway, N.J for the Razorbacks' game Saturday with Rutgers (2-1). But Allen has not practiced, Arkansas Coach Bret Bielema said on Wednesday's SEC Media Teleconference.

Bielema called Allen's availability against Rutgers "a game time" decision. He said backup QB AJ Derby, quarterbacking last Saturday's 24-3 victory over Southern Miss after Allen injured his right (throwing) shoulder in the first quarter, and redshirt freshman Austin Allen, Brandon's brother, logged the practice snaps Tuesday.

Asked for a specific description of Allen's injury,  Bielema said, "You know what, I just don't want to get into anything structurally (not broken was Bielema's description during his Monday press conference). He definitely hurt his shoulder and it's his throwing arm, obviously. That's the concern.

"He's definitely gotten better. I know he was a lot better yesterday. We filled our roster for the trip that went to the airline today. He's definitely going with us. It'll just be a game-time decision. The good news is we've been able to get a lot of quality reps with our next quarterback which would be AJ Derby and then Austin Allen after that. So it will be a work in progress until we get to Saturday. If he (Brandon Allen) can't go, the next man will be in and we'll take that challenge. I loved the way AJ and Austin handled practice."

Could he foresee playing Brandon Allen Saturday without him practicing a down this week?

"I think the thing that will really benefit him is being a prepared starter for three games," Bielema said. "I know the thing that will really benefit from here is being a prepared starter for three games. I know he only played a limited amount in that third game. He gets better with every practice, don't get me wrong, but I think he's a guy you if you felt like Saturday he could roll, we'd go with him. But he hasn't practiced. Unless the doctors could guarantee me 100 percent that there's no risk whatever and B.A. could look me in the eye and tell me, 'Hey, I can guarantee you I can go, Coach, and he doesn't blink, that's the only way we could let him go."

Bielema said starting offensive tackles Gray Ollison of Malvern and David Hurd, both injured during the Southern Miss game and replaced by freshman backups Denver Kirkland and Dan Skipper, practiced Tuesday and appear ready against Rutgers. Strong safety Rohan Gaines, out the last two games with a knee injury suffered during the season-opening victory over Louisiana-Lafayette, and receiver Keon Hatcher, idled the last two games by a hamstring injury, are also ready to play.

Have your say...

Gee, Bielema said in his SEC PC today that he was better and would travel. It's called gamesmanship, he also said unless cleared 100% by Dr.s, he wouldn't play.

Au contraire.  He'll be so well known in the state that they will name a famous horse race at Oaklawn after him.

Keep them off guard a bit.  Might even have him take a few snaps in pregame warm up. Sling and all.

yeah. Same thing was said last year. I'll wait until I hear CBB say Allen is good to go or until he runs out onto the field to take our first snap from scrimmage.

I was told by a fellow that allegedly knows the UA docs that Allen has a 6-8 week type injury. The doc also said if it were his son, he'd do surgery now so BA could recover in time to actually help us. I'm doubting the truth in it due to HIPAA regulations, but ain't it fun to throw around rumors?

All you posted was an article that was written after coach b'a teleconference.

Is there a chance be plays? Sure because none of us really know the injury.


Using logic, it's safe to say AJ will be the qb


And just because I have a strong opinion ba won't play doesn't mean I think we lose. It will be a tough game though.

I don't believe anything with the Allen situation (most of CBB's talk is coach speak and very guarded).  Either way, we don't benefit by Rutgers knowing what is happening, which is why he's a "game time decision".  If it is really 6-8 wk deal, then it benefits us to play it off as a minor injury that may heal in 4 days.  I am encouraged that we will have Hurd, Ollison, Hatcher, and Gaines though.  Those are 4 key guys.

Surgery for what has been described as an "AC Joint Bruise?" I'm not sure what the surgery would do for a bruise. I too will doubt the truth in this rumor.

This isn't the NFL. You can play these "who has an injury" kind of games. I'm not blaming anyone for it, either. It's the system ... and you do what you have to do. Bottom line is none of us really know -- and that's ok.

True.

Allen going to Rutgers is reminiscent of Knile dressing out for the Cotton Bowl.

Don't think you are coming at me at all


There really isn't such thing as a "bruised shoulder"

Internet searches can tell you what he probably has. Most believe it is a slight dislocated shoulder

If you watch the game and see him come up from the injury you can tell his arm is limp

I actually had a similar injury. Couldn't lift my arm for two days, but progressed to where I was throwing again by mid week. He has some built in recovery advantages that I didn't have. Not saying we had the exact same injury, but it is plausible that he could play if he progresses like I did. The  risk would be another blow to his shoulder. It is a risk. Hoping for the best. Long term health is the priority though.

Clint Stoerner explained the injury on the radio the other morning. Said he had the same injury in college.

Said that it's a bruise, but also a stretched shoulder. Depending on the severity, you could recover in 3-4 days, or 2 weeks. Just depends.
