A Big Ten program is heading into its weekend matchup with questions at the quarterback position. Purdue quarterback Elijah Sindelar is reportedly questionable for the team's game against Missouri on Saturday.

Head coach Jeff Brohm commented on the quarterback's status ahead of the game. "Some of that we'll keep internal. We'll get all of those guys ready to play," he said.

Here's more from Mike DeFabo of CNHI.

If Sindelar isn't ready for game time senior quarterback David Blough would be in line for the start. Blough has seen time already this season, filling in for an injured Sindelar - he completed 18-of-26 passing for 122 yards in relief.

Purdue desperately needs a win after dropping its season-opener against Northwestern and a devastating upset loss to Eastern Michigan last weekend, by just one point.

Purdue and Missouri kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday night. The game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
