Bielema: QB Allen will be back

Arkansas coach Bret Bielema tweeted Friday night that quarterback Brandon Allen will be back for the Razorbacks’ game Saturday against Texas A&M.

"Excited for a LIVE crowd in Razorback Stadium to start SEC play. We have a number of players back including QB (at)BrandonAllen-10," Bielema tweeted.

Allen, who earned the starting job in the preseason, injured his throwing shoulder two weeks ago against Southern Mississippi. Without Allen, the Razorbacks (3-1) lost 28-24 at Rutgers last week – a game they led 24-7 in the second half. Junior-college transfer AJ Derby was 14-of-26 passing for 137 yards
