Injury report

The Boilermakers are taking a "wait-and-see" approach with cornerback Ricardo Allen, who missed the Ohio State game with a lower leg injury.

"We sent him to get an MRI (Monday), and the results came back negative," Purdue coach Danny Hope said. "He has some issues, but nothing that has to be repaired or that's serious. He's had a couple of difficult ankle sprains and practicing and hobbling and limping on them has created some shin issues and soreness in his shins and calcium deposits."

"We're hoping that as the week goes on, that things will cool off and he'll be ready to play. We warmed him up in pregame (against Ohio State), and he struggled last week. Didn't do anything in the game. He had Sunday off and Monday off, and probably won't ask him to do a whole lot (Tuesday). Maybe as the week progresses, he'll feel better and be good enough to play this Saturday, but right now it's a wait-and-see thing."
