Charlie Jones leaves action vs. Syracuse with apparent injury
Charlie Jones not playing is not a good sign for the Purdue faithful.
Jones was seen holding his ribs and walking gingerly to the locker room following a collision to the ribs in the first quarter of Saturday’s Week 3 game versus Syracuse.

Purdue was struggling to move the ball even with Jones in the game, but perhaps inspired by their leaders’ departure, the Boilermakers got on the board with a Devin Mockobee 15-yard touchdown rush.
Unfortunately, the Orange blocked the ensuing extra point, which almost led to the elusive 2-point extra point score.
