Who is healthy and back, and who is still shelved.

NCAA Football: Illinois at Purdue Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue has the silliest quarterback controversy ever going into this week, as neither QB was effective on Saturday due to the weather and Plummer shouldn’t have been pulled at all. in fact, things are now this desperate:

Fine, so here is last week’s:

Overall thoughts:

  • The “or” at QB is absurd. Plummer was fine. He needs to be the guy at least until Sindelar returns.
  • Amad Anderson was returning kicks last week to little effect.
  • Rondale Moore has been slightly upgraded to “wait until he end of the week” per Brohm.
  • Now that we have 4 games left and true freshmen can play without burning their redshirt (if they haven’t played yet) Purdue might see some new faces. Steven Faucheux, Dontay Hunter, and Cam Craig may see time.
