Sindelar has been suffering from a concussion he sustained last week against Vanderbilt. Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm has said that he has full confidence in Plummer, despite his inexperience.
Purdue is 1-1 this season and is coming off a 42-24 victory over Vanderbilt. Tonight will mark the final game of the non-conference season for the Boilermakers.
