Purdue QB Rob Henry Tears ACL; Caleb TerBush the New Man for Boilermakers?

Purdue sophomore quarterback Rob Henry suffered a non-contact anterior cruciate ligament tear in his right knee at practice on Aug. 23. Further diagnosis will determine the extent of the injury and how long the Ocala, Fla., native will be sidelined. But you can bet the Boilermakers leading rusher and passer from last season is done for the year.

“Rob Henry is a huge part of our football program, our heart goes out to him” head coach Danny Hope said.

“He was voted a captain by the team in the spring, and I know he will continue to inspire and push Robert (Marve), Caleb (TerBush), Sean (Robinson) and all of his teammates forward.”

Hope even went out of his way to make practices less likely to result in injury this fall. And with the train wreck (pun intended) of injuries at the skill positions last season on who can blame him?
