Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels is refuting a report that he is out for the rest of the 2022 college football season.
The report came down on Tuesday afternoon from Zac Boyer of the Lawrence Journal-World that Daniels was set to miss the rest of the year with a separated shoulder.
But Daniels responded on Twitter on Tuesday evening, saying, “Sheeesh… That’s News to Me”.
Needless to say, the plot thickens as to what Daniels’ status is going forward. Earlier in the day, Lance Leipold called Daniels “doubtful” for the Oklahoma game this weekend.
Daniels has been one of the biggest surprises of the early college football season and was even getting Heisman odds up until the injury suffered this past weekend against TCU. He has thrown for 1,072 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Jayhawks while adding 335 rushing yards and five scores.
If Daniels can’t go, whether it’s for one week, one month or the rest of the season, expect Jason Bean to take the reins of this Kansas offense. Bean went 16/24 for 262 yards, four scores, and one interception against the Horned Frogs on Saturday. The senior is a former transfer from North Texas and is from Mansfield, Texas.
