FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas says it won't use a T-shirt launcher at War Memorial Stadium this weekend after a marketing intern was injured at last weekend's game.

The school said Tuesday a pneumatic launcher was lying on the artificial turf when it discharged Saturday. An intern was treated at a hospital and released.

A loud explosion rang from the southeastern corner of Razorback Stadium during the first quarter of Saturday's game with Louisiana-Lafayette. Medical personnel were seen later responding to an injured person who was taken away on a stretcher.

The school did not identify the intern and said it would not comment beyond saying it would not use the launcher at Saturday's game against Samford in Little Rock. A decision on future use will be decided later.
