FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas coach John L. Smith says quarterback Tyler Wilson took a hit to the head during Saturday night's loss to Louisiana-Monroe.

Smith says Wilson stayed in Little Rock following the loss, but that his prognosis is good heading into this week's game with No. 1 Alabama. The senior missed the second half of the overtime loss, throwing for 196 yards and a pair of touchdowns before exiting at halftime.

Wilson also missed the second half of a game last season with concussion-like symptoms.

Smith also says sophomore running back Kody Walker is likely out for the season after suffering a lower leg injury.

Cornerback Tevin Mitchel suffered an injury "above the shoulders" and is doubtful for this week's game, while cornerback Kaelon Kelleybrew is probable with an injured arm.
