Brandon Dean's MRI turned out about as good as possible, but he still may be out 3-4 weeks, according to UA trainer Dave England.
Dean, the Hogs' senior guard and second-leading scorer, was fouled hard on a breakaway in the late stages of Arkanas' 70-64 loss to Ole Miss. His fall sprained ligaments and bruised a bone around his knee, England said.
"There are not tears, and that's good news," England said Sunday morning. "We were able to get the MRI last night, and have it read this morning, and we are glad that nothing serious is wrong with Brandon's knee.
"It's a sprain, which takes some time to heal. It could take up to three or four weeks. Brandon's pretty tough, though, and heals quickly. I'd say it might be sooner than that. He's out this week, though."
All in all, that's about as good a report as was imaginable. Trainers and doctors didn't like the look of things after the game, althought they refused to speculate.
