I was responding to the question above while you were stating this but I'll try to clarify.
I saw Beason at the first two practices (at corner) and then he was with the wide receivers at the third practice. Haven't seen him since, so I assumed injury. Bielema clarified last night that it was an injury and he wasn't cleared by doctors to return to conditioning until Saturday.
Doesn't mean what you suggest won't come true. But he was listed on all the rosters in the pressbox last night. Including the "flip card" where he was listed with the receivers.
