    Arkansas' Mallett undergoes medical procedure on injured foot

    In February, Ryan Mallett suffered a break in his left foot during a winter conditioning drill and was expected to miss three months while he rehabilitated the injury.

    While not unexpectedly missing spring practices, the Arkansas quarterback was reportedly ready to resume throwing all of the requisite throws earlier this month.

    Wednesday evening brings word that the potential Heisman Trophy candidate underwent an "anticipated" medical procedure on his injured foot earlier today.

    "Ryan Mallett underwent a procedure Wednesday evening to replace a screw in his left foot," head coach Bobby Petrino said in a statement issued by the school. "We fully anticipated this would need to be done in early to mid-June and the timing of it was intentional to allow him to prepare for the season as much as possible during the summer months.

    "He will be non-weight bearing for the next two weeks and I expect Ryan to return fully after that time period. I am completely confident in our athletic trainers and medical staff and the plan they have put in place for Ryan."

    Feel free to draw your conclusions for an "anticipated" procedure that hasn't previously been reported.
