Purdue quarterback Elijah Sindelar’s undisclosed knee injury was finally revealed after the Boilermakers’ 38-35 win over Arizona in the Foster Farms Bowl.

According to Mike Carmin of the Journal and Courier, Sindelar has been playing with a torn ACL for the past 3 1/2 games.

“For a college player to do that and play at that level, it’s more than impressive,” said coach Jeff Brohm on Sindelar playing with the injury.

Sindelar suffered the injury in the first half of the loss to Wildcats on Nov. 11 in Evanston and wore a brace on his left knee the final three games.

Against Arizona, the young quarterback completed 33 of his 53 passes for 396 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. Then, on the season, the Kentucky native totaled 2,099 yards, 18 touchdowns and seven interceptions. And 11 of those touchdowns came after he suffered the injury.

Now, Purdue is focused on getting Sindelar healthy for next year.

“Without question, we want to get it fixed and give it a chance to heal and not only function for football and function for life after football,” Brohm said. “We’ll give him all the proper time to do that.”
