Kansas Quarterback Jalon Daniels Refutes Season-Ending Injury Report

Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels.

Earlier Tuesday, it was reported that star Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels would miss the remainder of the 2022 season due to a shoulder injury.

In the words of Lee Corso, not so fast my friend.

Daniels took to Twitter to cast doubt on a report by Zac Boyer of the Lawrence Journal-World that a separated right shoulder would cause him to miss the rest of the year. 

"Sheeesh... That's News to Me," Jalon Daniels tweeted.

If Daniels is indeed able to return to the field this season, that would be good news for the Jayhawks. 

Daniels got off to a great start to the 2022 campaign, throwing for 983 yards and 11 touchdowns while rushing for another 341 yards and five scores in the team's first five games. His play helped lead Kansas, which had not won more than three games in a season since 2009, to a 5-0 start.

Kansas coach Lance Leipold told reporters Tuesday that Daniels is "doubtful" for Kansas' matchup at Oklahoma this weekend but has not elaborated on his status beyond that. Jason Bean will start at quarterback during Daniels' absence.
