Purdue injury update

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Purdue will once again be without outside linebacker Jason Werner on Saturday against Notre Dame. Werner recently had a bone chip removed from his back and likely will miss two more weeks. The junior has yet to play this season after a promising summer.

"We desperately need Jason Werner, but we're not going to have him," head coach Joe Tiller said.

Tiller added that tight end Kyle Adams (knee) and offensive lineman Jared Zwilling (ankle) have "an outside chance" of playing Saturday.
