Bobby Petrino was a victim of a motorcycle crash this past weekend, but thankfully, he is expected to be OK. 

The Arkansas Razorbacks released a statement, and ESPN's Joe Schad tweeted the gist of it:

This is excellent news regarding Petrino's health. Many were fearing the worst, but the head coach seems able to fight through it. 

Nobody knows how the crash took place or what happened, but Chris Bahn of ArkansasSports360.com reports that Petrino was not wearing a helmet. 

Petrino should consider himself extremely lucky to be alive if that report is true.

According to Thomas Murphy of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Petrino suffered multiple injuries, although none were life-threatening.

Motorcycle crashes are serious, and Petrino is a blessed man to have survived with just minor injuries.

Sources reportedly told Schad and ESPN that Petrino wants to get back to the practice field as soon as possible, but it may take some time before he's able to be out there again. 

The Razorbacks are expected to be one of the top teams in college football this season, and there is no doubt they'd love for Petrino to be with them every day this spring and summer. 

Of course, Petrino's health is the focus right now, and we wish him well in his recovery.
