The injuries continue to mount for the Kansas Jayhawks. During his weekly press conference on Friday, Bill Self announced that junior forward Darnell Jackson injured his shoulder during an early morning practice. Jackson Slant was on hand for the press conference and has the latest updates on Jackson, Jeremy Case and Sasha Kaun.
Jackson Should Be Ready For Towson On Sunday:
"Darnell tweaked his shoulder today," said Self. "I'm sure his status will be okay for Sunday. I think Darnell has done a great job of being a producer from a points and rebounds standpoint. I'm not going to get too carried away in that he is play great, because obviously, nobody played well the other night.
"I do think that he is better than he was," he added. "He has certainly done a good job of scoring the ball and rebounding the ball."
Unless something changes from now until Sunday, Jackson should be ready to go against the Tigers. Through the first two games of the year, Jackson is averaging 11-points nine rebounds per game.

"Some things like that have been addressed that we've been telling our guys all along that maybe we haven't totally bought in to."
