Jeff Brohm and the offense of Purdue are looking to take the next step up in the 2022 college football season. Shortly before the season, Purdue has to overcome problems and injuries on offense.

On Saturday, Purdue had its latest scrimmage before the Boilermakers get ready for the Week 1 matchup versus Penn State on Sept. 1. After the scrimmage, Brohm discussed some of the concerns on the offensive side of the ball as captured by

“We’ve gotta get better. It wasn’t one of our better days…We have a ways to go,” said Brohm. “Definitely not good enough to win today.”

“I think we’re getting better,” said Brohm when addressing the offensive firepower. “I wouldn’t say we’re at where we need to be at.”

Among some of the issues Brohm cited were struggles in the red zone and the two-TE set up offensively.

The offense has to replace wide receiver David Bell, who had 93 receptions for 1,286 yards and 6 touchdowns last season. The Boilermakers trust several new and returning players on their offense, but they are losing players due to injury.

Purdue lost their second-string tight end Garrett Miller due to a season-ending knee injury on Monday, Aug. 11. His absence was noticeable in the red-zone and goal-line packages, as explained by Brohm.
