FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas receiver Javontee Herndon said it doesn’t matter whether quarterback Brandon Allen or backup AJ Derby plays at Rutgers.
It won’t change his responsibilities in the Arkansas offense.
1. Allen Will Travel To Rutgers
Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said quarterback Brandon Allen did not practice Tuesday because of his injured shoulder, but the sophomore will be with the team when the Razorbacks travel to Rutgers later this week.
FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas’ support for backup quarterback AJ Derby has been evident since he replaced injured starter Brandon Allen last Saturday.
One of the best examples was its explanation for Derby’s struggles handling shotgun snaps in the 24-3 win against Southern Miss.
1. Big-Play Back
Arkansas freshman Alex Collins may lead the Razorbacks in rushing with 418 yards, but teammate Jonathan Williams has accounted for the majority of the team’s big plays through three games.
