Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett has left the game due to an apparent injury.  What that injury is, nobody knows exactly.  Following an Auburn touchdown -- that wasn't really a touchdown -- the Razorbacks came back on the field with Tyler Wilson under center.  CBS's Tracy Wolfson tried to find out what the problem with Mallett was, and where he was, but Arkansas refused to tell her anything.

According to the Auburn sideline, however, Mallett has gone back to the locker room with what they say is a knee injury.  How accurate that report is, we don't know.  What we do know is that without Mallett on the field, Arkansas is in serious trouble.

The first series with Wilson under center resulted in a blocked punt that set up another Auburn touchdown to give Auburn a 24-14 lead.

Hopefully there will be more information on Mallett's injury following halftime.  When we learn more about what's going on, we'll let you know.

UPDATE: Before heading into the locker room at halftime, Bobby Petrino told Tracy Wolfson that Mallett had "hurt his head."  When asked if it was a head injury Petrino responded, "I don't know."  Apparently his head is hurting too.

UPDATE: Bobby Petrino confirmed that Mallett has suffered a concussion and will not be returning in the second half.  Tyler Wilson will continue to play in his place.
