Mallett says foot injury should be fine

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP)—It’s the most talked-about left foot in the SEC—and Ryan Mallett is amused by all the fuss.

Mallett said Thursday he expects to be at full strength when fall camp starts despite breaking his foot back in February. Arkansas has said all along the injury shouldn’t affect the 6-foot-7 quarterback during the season, but nobody will know for sure until Mallett steps back into live competition.

“Everybody’s worried, but we kind of laugh at everybody because they don’t think we’re going to be ready,” Mallett said in a teleconference Thursday. “We’re going to be ready.”
