Purdue coach Danny Hope said quarterback Robert Marve could see some action as a backup Saturday against Southeast Missouri.
"We want to get Robert in the game and get Robert ready to play, and Robert can help us win," Hope said. "We don't have a statistical prediction on how we're going to play him right now. We haven't sat down and had that conversation. We're glad we have a guy that's starting for us (Caleb TerBush), that's doing well, that looks promising, and we have another guy that's a good player that looks healthy and ready to go (Marve). We're in better shape right now than we were a couple of weeks ago, much better shape."
