Arkansas senior quarterback Tyler Wilson was uninjured in a car accident on Interstate 540 on Tuesday morning.

An Arkansas State Police report says Wilson was rear-ended after he braked suddenly for traffic that stopped in front of him. Police say Wilson wasn't cited and no one was injured.

"Tyler Wilson was in a car accident and has been checked out," Arkansas spokesman Zack Higbee said in a statement. "He is fine and we anticipate him to practice this afternoon."

Wilson missed Arkansas' 52-0 loss to Alabama earlier this season after suffering a head injury in the Razorbacks' overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 8.

On the season, Wilson has thrown for 1,571 yards and nine touchdowns with five interceptions.

Arkansas (2-4) hosts Kentucky (1-5) on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
