Purdue starting quarterback Elijah Sindelar is officially a game-time decision when the Boilermakers host TCU on Saturday. Sindelar was diagnosed with a concussion following Purdue’s victory over Vanderbilt last week.
Sindelar has passed for 932 yards and nine touchdowns through two games.
If Sindelar is unable to be cleared or available to play this weekend against the Horned Frogs, Purdue will turn to redshirt freshman Jack Plummer to lead the offense. Plummer has yet to attempt a pass for the Boilermakers, but at least he would have Rondale Moore to throw to. Regardless, Purdue is a bit banged up going into this weekend’s game against an opponent from the Big 12.
Yesterday, Brohm announced starting linebacker Markus Bailey is out for the year with a knee injury. Bailey injured his knee in practice earlier this week and is scheduled for surgery in the coming weeks after swelling goes down. Offensive lineman Matt McCann is also a game-time decision for the Boilermakers, and wide receiver Jared Sparks is not expected to play.
