MRI results revealed that Purdue wide receiver Keith Smith suffered a torn MCL and ACL in his right knee and is out for the season.

Tough blow for the Boilermakers.  Receivers Justin Siller and Cortez Smith along with tight end Kyle Adams will have to pick up the slack, but Purdue's offense will struggle without Smith.

Purdue wide receiver Keith Smith caught 12 passes for 80 yards in a loss to Notre Dame.

The Irish kept Smith out of the end zone, doing a nice job working on top of him.   Don't worry, Smith will see his share of touchdowns this year.

Purdue receiver Keith Smith -- who missed spring due to wrist surgery -- is ready to be a difference maker for the Boilermakers.  “They can throw me around wherever they want,” he said. “I can play slot. You can put me in the backfield. I can throw the ball around a little bit. It's going to be fun."

Smith is a top receiver that may fly below the radar a tad in your draft.  Expect similar numbers in 2010.

As expected, Purdue's Keith Smith will take off the spring to recover from wrist surgery.  

Assuming Smith heals completely from the surgery he should again be one of the top receiving targets in the Big Ten.

Purdue wide receiver Keith Smith wore a green jersey in practice this week, which is normally reserved for quarterbacks.  The move could be a signal that Smith will see some time as the quarterback in the Wildcat formation.

Coach Danny Hope didn't come out and say that this is in the plans this week against Northwestern, but it is clear that they are considering it.  Anytime you can get some added touches out of your receiver it is a good thing.
