Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett (15) gets up slowly after being injured on a pass attempt in the first half of an NCAA college football game against Auburn in Auburn, Ala., Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010.

Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino says quarterback Ryan Mallett could return to practice as early as Tuesday.

Mallett suffered a concussion during the first half of Arkansas' 65-43 loss at Auburn on Saturday. He spent time on the sideline during the second half.

Petrino said Monday that the junior showed no symptoms of the concussion on Sunday. He said the "best-case scenario" was the quarterback returning to practice on Tuesday.

No. 21 Arkansas (4-2, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) faces Mississippi (3-3, 1-2) at home this weekend.
