Purdue-Illinois preview

Quarterback Rob Henry wore gloves on both hands while warming up before Purdue's game at Illinois. So the fact that he's even out on the field here at Memorial Stadium likely means he will at least see some playing time.

Henry injured the index finger on his throwing hand last week at Ohio State and has been questionable leading up to the game. He worked with both the first and second team offensive units during warmups. Freshman Sean Robinson also worked with both units about 30 minutes before kickoff, so we'll see if that translates into his first career start. Justin Siller, who has missed the last three games with a foot injury, also is in uniform and working at quarterback. Siller was converted to receiver, but coach Danny Hope said Siller would get some snaps at quarterback in practice if he was healthy after Henry's injury. Running back Dan Dierking was also on the field in warmups, and if he plays, it should help Purdue's offense.
