Update Oct 12 7:20 p.m.: While head coach Lance Leipold didn’t confirm the Grade 3 separation below, he did say Daniels is for sure out this week.
On Jalon Daniels' status, Leipold said Daniels didn't practice today and won't play this week. Adds that it has not been decided that Daniels' season is over. #kufball— Jordan Guskey (@JordanGuskey) October 12, 2022
Update: Jalon Daniels is reportedly out for the rest of Kansas’ 2022 season after separating his right shoulder late in the first half against TCU on Saturday. Backup Jason Bean will take over as the starter. Daniels led the Jayhawks to their first AP Poll ranking in over a decade with a 5-0 start to the season.
Bean started nine games for Kansas in 2021.
Kansas QB Jalon Daniels is expected to miss the rest of the season with a Grade 3 separation of his right shoulder, per sources.— Zac Boyer (@ZacBoyer) October 11, 2022
It's a tough blow for Daniels, who was opening a lot of eyes nationally for his (and the Jayhawks') start. It's Jason Bean's team now. #kufball
The Kansas Jayhawks are no longer undefeated after they failed to find the end zone on a last-ditch drive against TCU on Saturday. Starting quarterback Jalon Daniels wasn’t the one leading the team down the field in those final moments. He suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder at the end of the first half and did not return to the game.
Head coach Lance Leipold said Daniels did not participate in practice on Tuesday and is doubtful to return this Saturday as Kansas takes on the Oklahoma Sooners.
Jalon Daniels did not practice today. His status for Saturday's game against Oklahoma is DOUBTFUL. #KUfball— Michael Swain (@MSwain247) October 11, 2022
Backup Jason Bean, who started ten games last season, put up an impressive second-half performance for the Jayhawks, going 16-for-24 and throwing four touchdowns and one interception.
Daniels has thrown for 11 touchdowns and just one interception this season, adding five touchdowns on the ground. In his presumed absence, Kansas enters the Oklahoma game as 8-point underdogs at DraftKings Sportsbook.
