Top Purdue corner may have dreaded high-ankle sprain

Ricardo Allen AP

The season opener — and their pride — may not be the only thing Purdue lost Saturday afternoon.

In the third quarter of the 42-7 loss to Cincinnati, cornerback Ricardo Allen went down with what appeared to be an ankle injury.  While there is no confirmation yet, head coach Darrell Hazell allowed that the injury could be a high-ankle sprain.

Further testing Sunday will determine for certain the extent of the injury and just how long the corner will be sidelined.  Allen could conceivably return for this weekend’s game against Indiana State or, as is ofttimes the case with a high-ankle sprain, the injury could linger for weeks.

If it’s the latter, it would be a significant blow to a Boilermakers defense that can ill afford it.

Allen has started 37 games for Purdue over the past three-plus seasons.  He has returned four interceptions during his time with the Boilermakers, a school record and one shy of setting the FBS record of five held by Oklahoma State’s Darrent Williams.

    After that game yesterday, not sure if they have ANY corners.

    After what they did yesterday, they should be ashamed of themselves! And THAT is the reason I criticize NOTRE DAME! They quit playing Michigan but continue their rivalry against a pitiful Purdue team and program! And that is why Brady Hoke called them out! And ND opens up with a weak Temple team yesterday! Did anyone see Manti T’eo’s girlfriend at that game? Another FAKE, PHONY, FRAUD! Hey ND….keep playing patsies to build the win column. Did Prince Shembo play yesterday? Another role model…….NOTTTTT!!!

    I feel sorry for thegamecocker and his lack of understanding of how things work.

    1) Michigan couldn’t keep the ND game – they want 7 home games a year and couldn’t have that with ND (due to 9 game conf schedule). Their AD even stated this. In fact, Michigan has the history of avoiding ND. Also, the ACC schedule with ND will result in either MSU or Purdue being off the schedule. Fact
    2)ND has replaced Michigan with Texas, FSU and Clemson over the next 5 years. Stronger teams with better exposure (check out the ’15-16 schedule). Fact.
    3) ND continues to play USC, their actual rival, not the morons up in AA. USC has better tradition and has been the better team for well over a decade. Fact.
    4) Speaking of being phony, ND and the fake USC have the same amount of SEC titles. Fact.
    5) Too bad ND played Temple and not Coastol Carolina Chant…or forget it. CCC is a powerhouse in highschool football. Fact.
    6) Shembo has never been arrested or in trouble with the law. Unlike the 43 players/coaches arrested under Spur-dog. Fact.

    LOL, stay off the internet little child.

    TheGameCocker just got owned so hard he must have imploded. It’s tough when facts bury you so hard that you have to go into hiding. Keep trolling and you’ll get owned. It’s great ND fans are smart enough to destroy with reality and not made up junk.

    First, learn how to spell “Coastal”; second, how many Top 20 teams will ND play this year? let’s see….Temple? No; Michigan (Yes); Purdue (No); Michigan St (Maybe…); Oklahoma (Yes); Arizona St (Maybe); USC (Yes); Air Force (No); Navy (No); Pittsburgh (No); BYU (No); and Stanford (Yes). I’m surprised ND isn’t playing Army and Coast Guard Academy this year. Instead of adding Texas, why didn’t ND go back to Michigan? Could it be because you have a losing record against “BIG BLUE”? FSU, Clemson, and Texas are stronger teams than Michigan? Show me on Saturday…..”Shembo has never been arrested or in trouble with the law…”; neither was OJ Simpson until he committed murder…..

    lol I feel bad for you. That’s all you have to add

    2013 schedule? Looks like the fake USC plays a mighty 3 ranked teams. lol.

    Yes, FSU and Texas have all played in NC’s sooner than Michigan. In fact, Michigan is coming off a 8 win season and 31- 20 in the last 4 years. Yawn. And Clemson has beaten LSU and Georgia in a row. SO yes, stronger than Michigan.

    So you are comparing a guy that touched a boob over a shirt to a guy that has spent years in jail. Again what about the 43 players/coached arrested under Spur-dog? I think that might be worse than the list he had at Florida.

    Again, stay off the internet little child.

    Gee Scooter, with a name like that….I don’t know if I should be responding to you or calling your parents. Anyway, with all that you cite about South Carolina, no one EVER DIED BY THE HANDS OF EITHER A SC FOOTBALL PLAYER OR COACH! Now get lost you horses ass! LIZZIE SEEBURG AND DECLAN SULLIVAN! Shame on you and ND! And I won’t even bring up that joke and liar, MANTI T’EO!
