Report: Purdue star WR Rondale Moore expected to make season debut vs. Minnesota
Rondale Moore is expected to make his 2020 debut on Friday night for Purdue, according to a report.
That’s per ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg:
Expecting #Purdue wide receiver Rondale Moore to make his season debut tonight at #Minnesota. He's among several key Boilers who are game-time decisions. Moore, a 2018 All-America selection, has missed the Boilers' first four games because of a lower body injury.

Purdue coach Jeff Brohm has declined to share specific information on why Moore missed the Boilermakers first three games of the season.
His return will be a welcome addition to a Purdue offense that struggled last week against Northwestern.
In his place, receiver David Bell has been very productive. He has 321 yards and four touchdown catches through three games. If both are on the field, it will be extremely difficult for the Gophers to stop.
Moore missed most of last season with an injury, but caught 114 passes for 1,258 yards and 12 touchdowns as a true freshman in 2018.
Purdue and Minnesota will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on Friday night.
