Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels suffered a shoulder injury on October 8 in the Jayhawks’ loss to TCU. Though initial reports listed him as out for the season, Daniels has been making his way back to the field over the past month, warming up for the past few games without seeing playing time.
The Jayhawks began the season 5-0, but have dropped to 6-4 since Daniels’ injury.
