FAYETTEVILLE Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson was uninjured in a car accident Tuesday morning, UA spokesperson Zack Higbee said.
Wilson will be able to practice on Tuesday, Higbee said, after being checked out by doctors.
The accident occurred at Exit 66 on Interstate 540 near the Fayetteville Autopark, according to a narrative provided by Arkansas State Police. Wilson's 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser was rear-ended by a van licensed to Spectrum Paint Company.
Wilson's car went off the road and struck divider cables in the median. Neither driver was taken to the hospital.
A redshirt senior, Wilson has passed for 1,585 yards and 9 touchdowns this season for the Razorbacks (2-4, 1-2 Southeastern Conference). He has played in five games after suffering a concussion in the first half of a loss to Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 8 and missing the following game against Alabama.
Arkansas is scheduled to face Kentucky on Saturday at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium.
