Kansas will likely be without star quarterback Jalon Daniels, who hurt his right shoulder in last week's loss to TCU, leaving backup Jason Bean to start Saturday when the No. 19 Jayhawks visit struggling Oklahoma.
Daniels was hurt just before halftime in the 38-31 loss when he was scrambling toward the sideline and was sacked by the Horned Frogs' Jamoi Hodge. He was evaluated in the medical tent before heading to the locker room ahead of the rest of the team for more tests. When he returned to the sideline in the second half, Daniels was dressed in sweats.
"Jalon did not practice today and would probably be put in the doubtful area," Jayhawks coach Lance Leipold said Tuesday. "Again, looking at it day to day, but hasn't done anything yet and that's probably the extent I will comment at this time."
Daniels had been the catalyst behind the Jayhawks' 5-0 start to the season, earning early Heisman Trophy consideration by throwing for 1,072 yards with 11 touchdowns and one interception while running for 335 yards and five more scores.
He was 5-of-10 for 89 yards and had run seven times for 6 yards before leaving the game against the Horned Frogs.
Bean, who started nine games last season before getting hurt, nearly rallied the Jayhawks to the win.
