Purdue coach Jeff Brohm says QB Elijah Sindelar is making progress in concussion recovery
Purdue coach Jeff Brohm said quarterback Elijah Sindelar is improving from the concussion he suffered more than two weeks ago, but he still hasn’t cleared the concussion protocol.
For that reason, Purdue’s starting quarterback for this Saturday’s game against Minnesota remains in question.
“Really, last week, we thought he was making progress Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday. It wasn’t until Thursday where some things popped up again.”

With a bye, Purdue didn’t play last week, but he did miss the previous game against TCU on Sept. 14. Sindelar suffered his concussion in Week 2 against Vanderbilt.
Before exiting that game, Sindelar had amassed 932 passing yards and nine touchdowns. Redshirt freshman quarterback Jack Plummer started in place of Sindelar this past Saturday.
Purdue will host Minnesota this Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET in the Boilermakers’ first Big Ten game of the year.
