Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson couldn't play Saturday because of the head injury he suffered last week.
But Wilson did make a quick appearance in the interview room after the 52-0 loss.
Wilson didn't take questions, but did have something to say. Below is his statement:
"Iíll start with the football game. Obviously, it wasn't very pretty to watch. It wasnít pretty for me to sit on the sideline and watch as a player. It sucks I canít be out there to do anything about it. Do I feel that we, at times, gave up out there? Yeah, absolutely. As a leader, it sucks to see people not do their jobs and things go wrong. Thereís been a lot of things gone that way. As a leader, at this point, youíve got to look forward. And thereís been a lot of people jump off the bandwagon and itís my responsibility as a leader to keep everybody in this organization, in this team, in that locker room together. And Iím going to make sure of it going forward. Weíve got a big game against Rutgers next week. Iím going to do everything in my power to be a part of it and be the starting quarterback and run out there on the field and get a win. Youíve got to start with one before you can get the rest of them. But I give you my word Iím going to do the best in my ability and the best in my power to make that happen. Thatís all Iíve got."
Wilson's status isn't clear for next Saturday's game. The Razorbacks are hopeful he will return, though.
Arkansas has been outscored 79-10 in the six quarters and overtime period since Wilson left the field.
