Purdue Football Jersey Scrimmage: Danny Anthrop Suffers Knee Injury

Kirk Irwin

The sophomore wide receiver left the final scrimmage of fall practice with what was called a "significant knee injury".

First, it was Dan Moteroso who was lost to a broken collarbone. He is out at least a few weeks, and given the depth at receiver, the fact he needs surgery, and the fact that he is a true freshman he will likely be out for the year and redshirt.

Well, today, the news got worse. Danny Anthrop, a player projected as a starter at receiver as only a sophomore, was lost to what is being called a significant knee injury:

Central Catholic graduate Danny Anthrop suffered a left knee injury during the nearly two-hour scrimmage at Ross-Ade Stadium. After Anthrop's knee was hit from the side by a defender, you could hear the sophomore in pain as he lay on the turf.

I fear we're now going to hear the three dreaded letters we have learned to loathe as Purdue fans. The curse may have struck again.

Other than that, the jersey scrimmage went well. The Black team (offense) beat the gold (defense) 77-43:
