FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas coach Bret Bielema tweeted Friday night that quarterback Brandon Allen will be back for the Razorbacks' game Saturday against Texas A&M.

Allen, who earned the starting job in the preseason, injured his throwing shoulder two weeks ago against Southern Mississippi.

Without Allen, the Razorbacks (3-1) lost 28-24 at Rutgers last week -- a game they led 24-7 in the second half.

Junior college transfer AJ Derby was 14-of-26 passing for 137 yards in the loss.
