Jayden Daniels is perfectly fine, at least according to him.

Any possible scares surrounding the reigning Heisman Trophy winner came earlier this week after NFL Network's Ian Rapaport posted a photo of Daniels with his elbow nearly deformed.

The photo shows Daniels throwing a pass on Nov. 4 against Alabama, but his right elbow appears to have a large bulge, hence its distorted appearance. Ironically, Daniels was even treated for an injury that night.

Social media users joked that it was poorly edited or even the work of AI.

Daniels, expected to be one of the first picks in next month's NFL draft, apparently caught wind of the concerns and shut them down.

“my elbow is perfectly fine.. stop the cork!!” Daniels wrote aboutformerly Twitter, with a cap and gaping emojis.

For non-Z generators, the “ceiling” is often dismissed as an exaggeration or a lie.

Daniels threw for 3,812 yards, 40 touchdowns and four interceptions last season. On the ground, he totaled 1,134 yards and 10 touchdowns. In his last three games, he rushed for 1,020 yards and 13 touchdowns to win the Heisman.

He led the Tigers to a 9-3 record despite a defense that allowed the second-most yards and third-most points per game in the SEC.

There has been a lot of talk about quarterbacks in this NFL Draft. Caleb Williams is expected to go No. 1, but JJ McCarthy's sudden rise has many wondering how it will affect UNC's Daniels and Drake Maye.

The Bears, Commanders and Patriots have the top three picks, in that order, and each should take a quarterback. There has been a lot of talk that a team, likely the Minnesota Vikings, could possibly trade up to the fourth pick to take a quarterback as well.
