Purdue quarterback Aidan O’Connell is expected to be a game-time decision against FAU on Saturday with an unspecified injury, sources told ESPN.
O’Connell is fifth nationally with 1,000 passing yards so far in 2022. He threw for eight touchdowns and one interception while establishing himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the game.
The next player on the Purdue depth chart is sixth-year graduate transfer Austin Burton, who transferred from UCLA after the 2019 season. Burton played in seven games for the Boilermakers last year, appearing in relief and in select packages.
