There's still no official word from Purdue on the status of starting quarterback Robert Marve, who sustained a "serious" left knee injury in last week's loss to Toledo.
Marve was scheduled to undergo an MRI this week, but coach Danny Hope didn't know the results as of Tuesday night. A team spokesman told me this afternoon that there's nothing new on Marve's status.
"I came here for a reason, just like everybody else did," Henry told reporters Tuesday. "I didn't come here to sit on the bench. If I'm the guy, I'm ready. I'll prepare and work hard and be ready to play."
Defensive coordinator Donn Landholm said on the Big Ten teleconference Tuesday that Henry and true freshman Sean Robinson would be the top two quarterbacks going forward. Wide receiver Justin Siller started three games at quarterback in 2008, but hurt his foot in the Toledo game.
Landholm said any discussion about Siller moving back to quarterback would take place during the bye week.
