A week after the unexpected death of his father, Arkansas center Frank Ragnow will suit up and likely start against Alabama.

Ragnow flew back to Minnesota last Saturday night, accompanied by Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema and wife Jen, after his father Jon suffered a heart attack shortly after Arkansas beat Alcorn State 52-10. The junior missed the entire week of practice, but Bielema said Monday that he’d still have the option to play against the Crimson Tide.

Ragnow returned to school Thursday, and it appears he will start tonight. The No. 16 Razorbacks (4-1, 0-1) will be happy to have him when they host No. 1 Alabama (5-0, 2-0) at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
