"He's moving and everything's good there," coach John L. Smith reported after the game. "The prognosis, I think, is going to be good. Thank God he's okay."
Mitchell is arguably Arkansas' best defensive player. The sophomore is a second year starter out of Texas and took on an expanded role under Paul Haynes' defense in this his second season.
The severity of the injury is currently unknown.
The collision occurred in the 4th quarter when Mitchell collided helmet first with another player and immediately buckled to the ground. He appeared motionless and was placed on a stretcher before being carted off the field. Mitchell showed no movement but did appear to be speaking with the medical staff.
