Injury Update: Jayden Daniels Speaks Out on Elbow Issues


A photo of Jayden Daniels that gained widespread attention this week sparked some misguided speculation regarding a potential elbow problem. 

However, the talented quarterback firmly asserts that there are no issues with his throwing arm.

Ian Rapoport, a reporter from NFL Media, recently shared a photo of Daniels that caused a significant reaction among fans. 

A photo captured during LSU’s game against Alabama in November depicted Daniels in the act of throwing a pass.

The Tigers star’s elbow was flexing in a manner that revealed a clear view of the bones and ligaments in his arm.

Jayden Daniels Addresses Concerns Over Elbow

TAMPA, FLORIDA – JANUARY 01: Jayden Daniels #5 of the LSU Tigers looks on during the ReliaQuest Bowl against the Wisconsin Badgers at Raymond James Stadium on January 01, 2024 in Tampa, Florida.

Despite the high-definition image capturing the precise moment Daniels was throwing a pass, numerous individuals were convinced that it indicated an issue with the quarterback’s elbow.

On Friday, Daniels went on X to calm any concerns about his arm.

“My elbow is completely fine. No need to exaggerate!” Daniels penned.

Conclusions were drawn by some sports medicine doctors based on the photo. In a detailed post on X, Dr. Jesse Morse discussed Daniels’ condition in his right elbow, describing it as “more annoying than concerning” and stating that it usually does not affect player performance.

There have been no indications of NFL teams expressing any concerns about Daniels’ throwing arm. 

The photo was captured during a remarkable season for Daniels, where he showcased his exceptional skills by throwing for an impressive 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns, and only four interceptions.

If the slip-up Brian Kelly made about Daniels’ NFL landing spot is any indication, it seems that only the online community is expressing concern over the elbow photo.
