Brandon Mitchell's status still unknown

10/31/2012

Arkansas coach John L. Smith still doesn't know if suspended wide receiver Brandon Mitchell will play Saturday against Tulsa.

Mitchell was suspended before last week's loss to Ole Miss for a violation of a team rule, and while he has practiced this week, Mitchell could still be held out of this weekend's game. When asked earlier this week if Mitchell's issue had anything to do with his eligibility, Smith wouldn't say.

On Wednesday, Smith only said that he wasn't sure when Mitchell would return and was still looking to find out more about Mitchell's situation.

"We're trying to collect everything. There is not [an update]," Smith said. "Brandon, right now to this point, is still where he was."

Smith said he would try to make some phone calls to get more information on Mitchell's eligibility before Wednesday's practice.
