Will Kansas football quarterback Jason Bean suit up for the Jayhawks tonight against Cincinnati? Find out the latest on his injury status.
Last week in the Sunflower Showdown, senior signal caller Jason Bean was announced as the starting quarterback for Kansas football on the PA speakers in David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. Yet when the Jayhawks took the field, it was true freshman Cole Ballard, and he took every snap of the game.
Head coach Lance Leipold noted in his postgame press conference that Bean was ‘cleared to play’ from the head injury he sustained against Texas Tech one week prior. However, he still watched from the sidelines on his Senior Day.
So the question that persists ahead of tonight’s matchup is: Who will be KU’s starting quarterback tonight?
Is Jason Bean Playing Today For Kansas Football?
Coach Leipold implied that Jason Bean is probable to play today. That means we can expect him to suit up with pretty high confidence.
He told the media last week that he didn’t receive enough first-team practice reps, which was a major reason why he didn’t play. His first practice came on Wednesday in a limited fashion. However, he has practiced each day this week with the first team, which would suggest he is good to go.
Leipold said this a few days ago: “I think he will be cleared, he practiced [Monday]. We will continue to make our observations as we go. I think both [quarterbacks] should be ready and able to play and looking forward to it.”
Therefore, the answer to this question is yes.
