Henry's finger is reportedly not broken, but his fingernail was torn off and his finger was cut. This is his index finger on his throwing hand.
There's a joke to be made here about Henry being unable to throw not really impacting the game plan....
However, the situation is now this:
Robert Marve -- out for season (ACL)
Caleb TerBush -- our for season (academics)
Rob Henry -- out for two weeks (finger)
So now the Boilers will start freshman Sean Robinson. Understand this: Robinson was slated to be the fourth QB this season, which really meant he would see zero action (like b-dowd in college) and would likely be redshirted. You really should not have heard of Sean Robinson if you're a casual Purdue fan. Yet, here he is!
And after him, you ask? Why, it's scout teamer Skylar Titus, a walk-on. Or possibly the recently recovered from injury Justin Siller.
So if anything happens to Robinson this week, your options are a walk-on or a guy who hasn't played QB in two years.
Despite this, the team is 4-3 and 2-1 in conference. Join us, as we venture into the great unknown.
