AUBURN, Ala. — Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen left the Hogs’ game against Auburn with an apparent right knee injury and missed a few plays before returning on the next drive.
Allen laid on the ground, clutching his right knee after a completed pass to tight end Austin Cantrell with 10:22 left in the second quarter. He was helped off the field by athletic trainers and replaced by backup quarterback Ty Storey.
