Report: Kansas QB Jalon Daniels to Miss Rest of Season



The Big 12’s Cinderella story may have suffered a fatal blow. Kansas quarterback Jason Daniels is expected to miss the rest of the season, according to Zac Boyer of the Lawrence Journal-World.

Boyer’s report claims that Daniels suffered a “grade 3” separation of his right shoulder. Daniels left Kansas’ Week 6 game against TCU in the first half on Saturday.

Backup Jason Bean took over, completing 16 out of 24 passes and throwing for 262 yards and 4 touchdowns. Bean’s strong play in relief of Daniels was still not enough, as the Jayhawks lost their first game of the season. Bean will now assume starting duties permanently for the 5-1 (2-1) Jayhawks.

Any team facing Kansas the rest of the season will be experiencing a completely different matchup than what earlier opponents, including West Virginia, had to deal with. Daniels posted a 159.6 quarterback rating while throwing for 219 yards and 3 touchdowns under the lights at Milan Puskar Stadium back in Week 2, leading his team to what was viewed at that time as a big upset in overtime. He also ran for 85 yards for an average of 7.1 yard per rush. WVU, like most teams this season, couldn’t find an answer for the RPO (run-pass-option) game plan Kansas employed with Daniels.

Kansas will now take on an Oklahoma team attempting to dig themselves out from a hole following their 49-0 loss to Texas.
