Jeff Brohm talks QB situation, says Rondale Moore 'has a ways to go'
Purdue is not at 100 percent right now. And to be honest, it hasn’t been close to 100 percent for quite some time.
Whether it be quarterback injuries or injuries to All-American wide receivers, the Boilermakers have had to overcome a lot this season. As it stands, Purdue is 2-6 overall.
The Boilermakers need to win out in order to become bowl eligible and it starts with a contest against Nebraska on Saturday at noon ET. The game will be televised on FOX at Ross-Ade Stadium.
Purdue coach Jeff Brohm spoke with the media after practice on Thursday and talked about the latest on the quarterback situation as well as Rondale Moore’s injury progression:
“I think Jack (Plummer) has had a good week of practice,” said Brohm amid swirling snow after Thursday’s outdoor workout. “He had a good day today, actually, in the elements. Aidan (O’Connell) I think did some good things toward the end of the game (last week). His first time ever playing.
“We are gonna need two guys. We won’t be afraid to use two. But I do feel like Jack has really practiced well and we wanna see it carry over to the game. And sometimes that’s not making a ton of plays always, but taking care of football, doing the small things, not beating ourselves. I think that’s one thing we have to do at this time of the year when you get to November and December is not beating yourself.”
Brohm on Moore:
As far as progressing, he has progressed but still has a ways to go,” said Brohm of Moore, who has missed the last four games after hurting his left hamstring September 28 vs. Minnesota.
