Arkansas head coach Sam Pittman revealed Wednesday that starting KJ Jefferson's status for the LSU game on Saturday is up in the air as he is still dealing with a shoulder injury. Per Rivals:

"Yeah, it’s really in the clavicle area…it’s bruised," Pittman said. "It’s hard for him to throw the ball without some type of pain. Like I say, he’s much better than what he was last week. So hopefully we’ll get a good week of practice out of him and go from there."
"I don’t know exactly what he’ll do today," Pittman said. "But that’s still kind of a fluid situation."

"I will say this, that Malik Hornsby’s had a really good week of practice," Pittman said. "The team is confident in him. So either way, whatever happens, whether we play KJ or whether we play Malik, we feel like we’ll have a guy that can go back there that the team believes in that can execute our game plan."
