It hasn’t been too long since Purdue QB David Blough suffered a season-ending ankle injury against Illinois back in November.

However, he’s making his recovery from surgery and is progressing faster than expected, according to Purdue coach Jeff Brohm.

Per, Brohm expects Blough to be ready for spring practices, though he’s not sure if Blough will be able to be a full participant:

“He’s doing a great job and he will be out there at spring practice and will be participating,” Brohm said. ‘Whether it will be fully that remains to be seen. He will be out there Day 1 and doing some portions of practice.

“We’ve got to make sure we protect him, especially in 11-on-11 settings. We’ll see how the first week goes if we can progress on that.”

Fellow QB Elijah Sindelar finished the year on a torn ACL, and his injury is such that he likely won’t be ready for the spring.

If Purdue can keep its quarterbacks healthy this fall, though, the Boilermakers could be dangerous in the Big Ten once again.
