FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas quarterback Austin Allen has returned to practice and is expected to play in Saturday’s home game against No. 10 Florida.
Allen injured his right knee in the second quarter of the Razorbacks’ 56-3 loss at Auburn on Oct. 22 and returned to the game, but left again in the fourth quarter when the knee began swelling.
The junior did not practice at all during Arkansas’ bye last week, but returned and went through drills with the No. 1 offense on Sunday, coach Bret Bielema said during Monday’s news conference
Redshirt freshman Ty Storey entered the Auburn game in Allen’s place. Storey and true freshman Cole Kelley split first-team reps during bye week practices.
Allen has thrown for 2,051 yards, 18 touchdowns and 7 interceptions through the Razorbacks’ eight games this season. He leads the SEC in touchdown passes.
Bielema said the only player that is still limited because of injury is sophomore right tackle Brian Wallace. If he isn’t able to play against Florida, redshirt freshman Colton Jackson would likely return to the starting lineup.
