To start the season, Elijah Sindelar was the man in charge at quarterback for Purdue. By the month of October, he was out with an injury.

In came the backup, Jack Plummer. He started and played well in spots, but on Saturday against Nebraska, Plummer went down with an injury, too. This forced third-stringer Aidan O’Connell into the game.

O’Connell did his job, leading the team on a game-winning touchdown drive ending with a perfectly-timed reverse.

On Monday, Brohm spoke with the media and gave an update regarding Sindelar and Plummer:

Not good news if you’re a Boilermakers fan. Brohm also talked about who is next in line behind O’Connell now that both Sindelar and Plummer are likely out for the season:

Purdue is down to its third-string quarterback as it is. If Paul Piferi or Danny Carollo have to come in and win games for the Boilermakers, good luck. And, that’s not a shot at Purdue.

Talk to any coach about their fourth- and fifth-string quarterbacks. It’s likely that there isn’t a ton of trust there.

Purdue is currently 3-6 and must win its last three games in order to become bowl eligible. The Boilermakers travel to take on Northwestern on Saturday, Nov. 9.
