The bad injury luck is rearing its head once again in 2019, as it appears redshirt sophomore Noah Daniels’ season is done before it even began.
Daniels, a 6’0” CB out of League City, TX, played in all 13 games last season after redshirting his first year on campus. The talented young player had a breakout game against Ohio State, making four tackles and breaking up a pass. Though he was slated behind seniors Julius Lewis and Jeff Gladney, Daniels was being counted on to provide valuable depth in the pass-heavy Big 12. It is being reported that the corner had season-ending surgery today for an undisclosed injury.
With Daniels out, TCU will look to a relatively inexperienced group, with redshirt freshman Hidari Ceasar and true freshmen Donovann Collins, Tre’vius Hodges-Tomlinson and Kee’Yon Stewart next in line. Juco transfer Tony Wallace is currently working himself back from injury, but could be ready to go by September. Senior safety Keenan Reed could slide back to the outside, as well, if needed.
This is the second season-ending injury suffered by a TCU player since camp began last week; kicker Cole Bunce was in a scooter accident last Thursday that likely ends his senior season.
TCU opens their 2019 campaign on August 31st against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
