Purdue received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 DE George Karlaftis.

Karlaftis (6'5/240) cited family ties at Purdue as well as familiarity with the coaching staff as two reasons for his Boilermaker pledge. "The system and the schemes they want to run, it's perfect for me. Perfect for me," said the West Lafayette, Indiana, native. Karlaftis ranks as Rivals' No. 178 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough (shoulder) went 8-for-15 for 57 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 14-12 loss to Rutgers.

Once again, Blough, continuing to suffer from a lingering shoulder injury that has plagued him for most of the year, began as the backup to redshirt sophomore Elijah Sindelar. Sindelar struggled mightily Saturday. Blough came on at the end to lead the Boilermakers to a late touchdown, but he was unable to complete a two-point conversion attempt that would have forced overtime.
Oct 21 - 3:17 PM

Purdue HC Jeff Brohm said that senior LB T.J. McCollum (undisclosed) is unlikely to play in Saturday's game against Rutgers.

McCollum (6'3/240) sat out this past weekend's loss to Wisconsin due to the injury. Entering that contest, the Western Kentucky transfer was leading the Boilermakers with 40 tackles (2.0 for loss) in five games. Garrett Hudson is in line to draw the start if McCollum can't play on Saturday.
Oct 19 - 5:57 PM

Purdue HC Jeff Brohm is "hopeful" that junior WR Terry Wright (shoulder) will return Saturday against Rutgers.

Wright didn't travel with the team to Saturday's game at Wisconsin after suffering the injury the week before against Minnesota. If Brohm's optimistic about his odds pf returning against the Scarlet Knights, there's no reason we shouldn't be as well.
Oct 16 - 6:02 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore QB Elijah Sindelar struggled in Saturday's 17-9 loss to Wisconsin, completing 13-of-29 passes for 155 yards and an interception.

Sindelar drew the start with David Blough still suffering from a bothersome shoulder injury. Blough was listed as the backup but never entered the game. There's no debate when Blough is healthy: He's the starter. Purdue should be able to beat next week's opponent, Rutgers, no matter who's behind center.
Oct 14 - 6:52 PM

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough is going to begin Saturday's game against Wisconsin as backup to redshirt sophomore Elijah Sindelar.

Blough has been dealing with a shoulder injury for much of the season, but Sindelar drawing the start appears to be separate from that injury concern. We would not be surprised to see both quarterbacks play in the contest.
Oct 14 - 3:34 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore QB Elijah Sindelar was taking first-team snaps in warmups in advance of Saturday's game against Wisconsin.

Sindelar looks like he will start against the Badgers, with David Blough working as his backup. Both quarterbacks could potentially see work on Saturday.
Oct 14 - 3:32 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore RB Tario Fuller (foot) didn't travel with the team for Saturday's tilt with Wisconsin.

No surprise here, as the injury has cost Fuller the last two games as well. Markell Jones will function as the lead back against the Badgers on Saturday.
Oct 14 - 2:16 PM

Purdue junior WR Terry Wright (shoulder) didn't travel with the team for Saturday's game against Wisconsin.

Wright suffered the injury last week against Minnesota. His absence should mean that more targets will be funneled to primary options TE Cole Herdman and WRs Jackson Anthrop, Anthony Mahoungou and Gregory Phillips.
Oct 14 - 2:15 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore RB Tario Fuller (foot) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against Wisconsin.

Fuller wasn't able to go against Minnesota, and he won't be able to tote the rock against the Badgers. Markell Jones will again be the lead back in the Boilermaker offense.
Oct 12 - 8:22 PM

Purdue junior RB Markell Jones ran for 52 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries in Saturday's 31-17 victory over Minnesota.

Jones (5'11/207) was having a mostly pedestrian day until he scored the game-winning touchdown, a 12-yard scamper, with 1:17 left. That came after a lengthy lightning delay in the fourth quarter. Jones was returning from a knee injury he suffered in the season-opener against Louisville. So long as he's healthy, he'll figure prominently in the running back rotation. The resurgent 3-2 Boilermakers travel to Wisconsin next week.
Oct 7 - 8:38 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore QB Elijah Sindelar completed 19-of-26 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-17 win over Minnesota.

Sindelar entered following David Blough's second interception. Blough has been suffering from a throwing shoulder injury, so the quick hook wasn't surprising. Blough had outplayed Sindelar coming into the day, so we wouldn't expect Jeff Brohm to make a quarterback change, but Sindelar's showing against the Gophers will at least make Brohm consider sitting Blough until he's 100-percent.
Oct 7 - 8:35 PM

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough (shoulder) is starting Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Blough injured his shoulder in a loss to Michigan two weekends ago. He felt good in practice this week and draws the start against the Gophers on Saturday. Should the redshirt junior suffer any sort of a setback during the contest, Elijah Sindelar would see work. For now, so far so good for Blough.
Oct 7 - 3:52 PM

Purdue redshirt junior QB David Blough said that his right shoulder is "feeling great."

Blough sustained a slight sprain of the AC joint in his right shoulder during a loss to Michigan two weekends ago. Purdue had itself a bye this past weekend, allowing the 6-foot-1, 202-pounder ample time to heal up from the injury concern. Barring a late setback, he should be ready to roll for Saturday's game against Minnesota. Fellow QB Elijah Sindelar could potentially split time with Blough if HC Jeff Brohm opts to limit the redshirt junior.
Oct 6 - 8:49 PM

Purdue redshirt sophomore RB Tario Fuller (foot) is not expected to be able to play in Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Fuller had a bye to rest up after sitting out Purdue's loss to Michigan back in Week 4, but even with the additional time off, it looks like he'll be forced to miss a second consecutive contest. Exit Fuller, but enter Markell Jones, at least, returning from a knee injury. Brian Lankford-Johnson could also see his fair share of work on Saturday.
