Arkansas football: Injury helped QB Ryan Mallett?

Every cloud has its silver lining. From the AP, “If there’s one weakness Mallett needs to work on, it’s his accuracy on shorter throws. He completed only 56 percent of his passes last season and was kept in check by Florida and especially Alabama. Williams said the injury might have actually helped Mallett in that regard.”

“I think him getting off his feet and working on his accuracy helped him a lot,” Williams told the AP. “So now he’s accurate with the ball, and now he has that foot power behind it. I think he benefited from being out for a little bit, and now he’s on the field, he’s as sharp as ever.”
