Gabe Holmes Injury: Senior TE Out Vs. Notre Dame

Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

The senior tight end suffered a major wrist injury in practice.

Purdue received more bad news this afternoon when it concerns Saturday's night game against Notre Dame. The Boilers, already struggling on offense, will be without tight end Gabe Holmes, who injured his wrist Tuesday in practice. The injury came as he made a great catch and coach Darrell hazel labeled it as "significant".

Holmes has been Purdue's leading receiver so far. Through two games he has a team high nine receptions for 69 yards. Against Indiana State he had six catches for 39 yards and Purdue only has 33 receptions as a team.

Holmes is likely to be replaced by junior Justin Sinz, who has three catches for 19 yards. In his career he has 10 catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. Blocking tight ends Sterling Carter and Patrick Bade may also play a larger role, while redshirt freshman Carlos Carvajal is also a possible replacement.
