Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson is alright after being in a car accident Tuesday Morning on Interstate 540.
Zack Higbee, spokesman for the Arkansas Football Team, said that Wilson would be able to practice.
After suffering a concussion earlier in the season, there was great concern for Wilson, but as reported he will be good to go for practice as the Hogs prepare for Kentucky.
While Wilson is okay to play for the Hogs, the news is not
so good for linebacker Alonzo Highsmith. Highsmith will miss the rest of the
Hogs season after suffering a foot injury in the first half of Arkansas'
victory over Auburn last Saturday. According to Head Coach John L. Smith the
injury will require surgery.
On a defense that cannot afford any losses, Highsmith's is a huge one for the Hogs. He is the team's leading tackler with 54 tackles and two sacks.
Otha Peters, a freshman, linued up alongside Terrell
Williams after Highsmith elft the game, but Jarrett Lake and Matt Marshall
could see playing time as well.
That isn't the only thing going on in Arkansas. John L. Smith arranged for most of his $850,000 salary to be paid after his bankruptcy hearings.
Smith filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in early September and in a recent filing, it was revealed that the coach has $40.7 million in liabilities and $1.3 million in assets.
The finalized contract for Smith that was signed in July shows that he will receive $600,000 after the regular season ends, $300,000 coming on December 31, and another payment of the same amount on February 23. A week after acknowledging that he was facing bankruptcy after land deals gone bad in Kentucky, Smith finalized his contract.
The majority of the money that Smith will be paid is coming from the Razorback Foundation, while only $250,000 of it is actually coming from the University.
When asked if his planned payments will change, Smith declined to comment on it, saying that his focus right now was Kentucky.
After the Chapter 7 proceeding is finished, Smith, without further complications, will be released from debt.
