With 48 seconds remaining in the first half, Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels departed the No. 19 Jayhawks’ game against No. 17 TCU due to a shoulder injury.
Daniels is still being assessed, Kansas coach Lance Leipold said following the game, which his team lost 38-31.
On third-and-6 from the TCU 17-yard line, Daniels scampered to his right, where Jamoi Hodge sacked him for a loss of five yards. Daniels appeared to fall on his right shoulder and took a while to stand up.
Before the first half’s completion, he was first taken to the injury tent and then sent to the locker room. Kansas trailed TCU 10-3 at halftime, and Daniels had completed 5 of 10 passes for 89 yards prior to becoming hurt.
Daniels was replaced by redshirt senior Jason Bean to start the second half for Kansas. Daniels left the field without coming back but was spotted on the sidelines with his right arm concealed by a hooded shirt.
In addition to 335 rushing yards and five rushing scores, Daniels had completed just over 68% of his passes this season, with 11 touchdowns and an interception.
Forth the team’s first loss of the year, Bean put in a good effort, completing 16 of 24 passes for 262 yards and four touchdowns. Last season, Bean started the first 10 games for the team.
