Purdue may be without its starting quarterback on Saturday

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

1. Projected starting QB Elijah Sindelar is questionable for Saturday.

From the Courier & Journal:

Sindelar left Wednesday’s practice shortly after it started with an apparent injury. He wasn’t seen at the end of Wednesday’s practice and again at the close of Thursday’s workout when the media was allowed to watch.

Purdue has played two quarterbacks for much of the past two seasons, with Sindelar and David Blough splitting reps. However, Sindelar seems to be the more explosive, talented quarterback, whereas Blough has been more in the “game manager” mold.

Jeff Brohm said his staff is going to keep the injury report “internal” so we’ll see what leaks out as we get closer to Saturday. While Sindelar has been the more productive quarterback this season, remember that it was Blough that led that 35-3 thrashing of Missouri in 2017.

2. QB or no QB, let’s get pumped for Purdue.

On Thursdays, we watch hype videos.

Also, these stats should do plenty in getting you hyped for Saturday. Emanuel Hall is playing like a damn star since last year, and he’s only gotten better this year. And, in case you didn’t read it, check out David Morrison’s look at Emanuel Hall turning into another Danario Alexander.

I’ll have a Q&A with Hammer and Rails writer Travis Miller later on Friday, but there’s been no shortage of “Opposing View” Q&As this week.

Here’s one I did with Miller for Hammer and Rails, in which I predict a 38-24 Missouri win.

Dave Matter spoke with the Courier & Journal in a wide-ranging Q&A but didn’t proffer a prediction.

And, last but not least, Gabe DeArmond of spoke with the Purdue Rivals site for a candid, comprehensive Q&A.

Also, here’s a nice video feature on linebacker Cale Garrett. It’s crazy to remember that Garrett didn’t get an offer from Missouri until January 2016, before National Signing Day, and he likely wouldn’t have gotten the offer if Gary Pinkel were still the coach (Barry Odom loved Garrett, but the entire staff didn’t feel that way earlier).

Now he’s one of Missouri’s most productive defensive players and a captain.
