Purdue has had to deal with a number of injuries this season.

Of note, the Boilermakers lost QB Elijah Sindelar and WR Rondale Moore, as well as LB Markus Bailey. Both sides of the ball have been affected to the injury bug. And while every team gets bitten by it one way or another, the bug seems to have taken a chomp out of the Boilermakers.

This week, Purdue is hosting Maryland for a noon ET kickoff on Saturday and the game will be televised on BTN.

On Thursday, Boilermakers coach Jeff Brohm spoke with the media and gave an update to running backs Tario Fuller and Richie Worship:

To this point in the season, Fuller — a senior — hasn’t seen the field and is battling a jaw injury. Worship — also a senior — is recuperating from a torn ACL and hasn’t gotten to play yet this season either.

Leading the way for Purdue running the football in 2019 has been freshman King Doerue, taking 48 carries for 157 yards and 2 TD.
