Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough went 22-for-28 for 187 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 35-3 demolition of Missouri.

On the season, Blough is completing over 75-percent of his passes for around 10 yards per attempt. Last year, he completed 57.1-percent of his passes with a 6.48 YPA average. It's not like Purdue has had a cakewalk non-conference schedule either; they've played Louisville, Ohio, and now Missouri on the road. Blough's developmental surge owes much to new HC Jeff Brohm's offensive genius.
Sep 16 - 8:05 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore RB Tario Fuller rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Saturday's 35-3 demolition of Missouri.

He also had two receptions for 34 yards. Out of nowhere -- he had only 30 rushing yards total in 2016 -- Fuller has become Purdue's most valuable skill player. He's rushed for 261 yards and two touchdowns during Purdue's 2-1 start. The upstart Boilermakers are in for a huge challenge next week against Michigan.
Sep 16 - 7:59 PM

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough will start Saturday's game against Missouri.

Elijah Sindelar started each of Purdue's first two games this season, with Blough coming on in the second quarter of each contest. Boilermakers HC Jeff Brohm has finally opted to end that silliness and start Blough outright, a decision we agree with to the utmost.
Sep 16 - 4:11 PM

Purdue sophomore S Navon Mosley is expected to start in place of junior T.J. Jallow (undisclosed) against Missouri on Saturday.

Mosley (6'0/190) drew the start against Ohio last week as well. This is not a foreign spot for him, as he started 10 games in 2016 as a true freshman. "Navon has done a good job," said HC Jeff Brohm, later adding, "He likes the game of football. I think he’ll continue to get better as the season goes on."

Purdue junior S T.J. Jallow (undisclosed) is doubtful for Saturday's game against Missouri.

Jallow -- a four-star JUCO recruit in the 2017 class -- started in the Boilermakers' opener against Louisville, but saw only limited snaps in a Week 2 win over Ohio due to his undisclosed injury concern. Sophomore Navon Mosley started in his place against the Bobcats and figures to continue to see a heavy workload as long as Jallow is sidelined.

Purdue junior RB Markell Jones (knee) will not play against Missouri on Saturday.

Jones (5'11/207) has missed the first two games of the season, and HC Jeff Brohm has said there's no timetable for his return. Tario Fuller will likely get most of the carries going forward for the Boilermakers.
Sep 14 - 8:16 PM

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough completed 11-of-13 passes for 213 yards and three touchdowns in Friday's 44-21 win over Ohio.

As was the case with Purdue's opener against Louisville last weekend, Elijah Sindelar drew the initial start on Friday -- he played unremarkable ball -- before ceding way to Blough in the second quarter. Blough then proceeded to crush the universe, looking sharp sharp sharp in the process. Of his three touchdown tosses, the most flashy came with 5:33 remaining in the second quarter. On that play, HC Jeff Brohm pulled out the razzle dazzle, calling a flea flicker on a reverse which resulted in Blough connecting with a wide-open Cole Herdman down the right sideline. The whole thing was slow to develop, but ended up working out beautifully. Given his strong work in this one, we fully expect Blough to start against Missouri next weekend unless he is still feeling some ill-effect from a right shoulder strain suffered midway through preseason camp.
Sep 8 - 11:38 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore RB Tario Fuller rushed for 152 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries in Friday's 44-21 win over Ohio.

Fuller (6'0/190) was held to just 29 yards on eight carries in a season-opening loss to Louisville last weekend, but he erased that sour memory in high style against the Bobcats on Friday. The redshirt sophomore back averaged 8.94 YPC in the victory and notched a little one-yard score midway through the second quarter. His longest run in the contest went for 39 yards. The Boilermakers will take on Missouri next weekend, but Fuller's big early test will come against Michigan the following Saturday.
Sep 8 - 11:30 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore QB Elijah Sindelar drew the start over redshirt junior David Blough against Ohio on Friday.

Sindelar started against Louisville last weekend, too, with Blough -- who has been dealing with a shoulder injury -- coming in in the second quarter. In total, the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Sindelar completed 15-of-31 passes for 118 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in that loss.
Sep 8 - 8:15 PM

Purdue junior RB Markell Jones (knee) has no timetable for a return.

Jones (5'11/207) injured his knee while returning a kick in Saturday's loss to Louisville. Junior RB D.J. Knox will likely take over return duties for the foreseeable future, while Knox, Tario Fuller, Richie Worship and Brian Lankford-Johnson will all continue to chip in at running back in his absence. The Boilermakers had not settled on an out-and-out "starter" at the position entering Saturday's game against Louisville.
Sep 4 - 1:09 PM

APurdue redshirt WR Jackson Anthrop caught seven passes for 82 yards and two touchdown in a 35-28 loss to Louisville on Saturday.

Anthrop (5'11/185) also had a rush for four yards. Earlier this summer, Purdue coach Jeff Brohm praised Anthrop for his "toughness." He might have undersold him on his receiving skills. Whether it was David Blough or Elijah Sindelar behind center, he was the Boilermakers top target. His first touchdown was a 28-yarder from Sindelar in the first quarter to make it 7-0 Purdue, and he also scored in the fourth to give the Boilermakers a 28-25 lead on a 14-yard score. This was a very promising debut, and he could be option one for the remainder of the season.
Sep 2 - 11:48 PM

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough (shoulder) did not start Saturday's game against Louisville, but took over at the beginning of the second quarter.

Blough, who has been working through a right shoulder strain, warmed up but ceded the start to Elijah Sindelar. It would appear that HC Jeff Brohm just wanted to give him a little rest to start before sending him into action. He has played beautifully since taking over the reigns. The Boilermakers currently hold a 21-14 lead over the Cardinals midway through the third quarter.
Sep 2 - 10:00 PM

Purdue HC Jeff Brohm said that redshirt junior QB David Blough (shoulder) will likely be ready to return to practice in full on Sunday.

Blough has been limited by a right shoulder strain suffered a little over a week ago. He took part in light practice work on Tuesday, including throwing drills. At this juncture, it does not sound like he will miss time in the regular season. Purdue opens against Louisville a week from Saturday. Blough threw for 3,352 yards while posting a 25/21 TD/INT ratio last season.
Aug 24 - 7:11 PM

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough (shoulder) was a limited participant during practice on Tuesday.

Blough has been fighting through a right shoulder strain over the last week or so. He did some throwing work on Tuesday and said afterward that "[i]t feels great" and that's he's made "a ton of progress." Blough's status for the season-opener against Louisville should clarify over the next week, but there have been no indications to this point that he might be forced to miss any game action.
Aug 22 - 8:17 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore RB Tario Fuller is in line to start this season.

On the strength of a productive preseason camp, Fuller (6'0/190) has moved ahead of incumbent starter Markell Jones on the depth chart. The former three-star recruit does not have much production under his belt at this juncture, having only received 10 carries last season. We still expect Jones to see plenty of work this year, especially if Fuller proves ineffective out of the gate.
