The Boilermakers hit the outdoors for the first time this spring, getting in about 100 plays in their second scrimmage.
Following is a brief look at the practice at Ross-Ade Stadium:
• Purdue worked out in position drills for the first 30 minutes or so on Saturday, before breaking into its team drills.
The Boilermakers did a situational scrimmage, frequently lining up at the offense's 30-yard-line, pitting the 1s vs. 1s, 2s vs. 2s, etc. David Blough took first-team snaps at quarterback, although backup Elijah Sindelar got occasional series with the 1s, as well. Purdue also worked on redzone, starting on the defense's 30.
And the scrimmage ended with a two-minute drill.
The defense won each two-minute situation handily. The 1 offense was undone by an illegal motion penalty by receivers, followed by a sack from Antione Miles, giving it a fourth-and-20 that fell incomplete.
With the 2s, defensive tackle Fred Brown picked off Sindelar on an attempted screen pass on first down, ending that two-minute drill attempt. The second-team offense, with another chance, flamed out on the defense's 46, when Sindelar threw four straight incomplete passes.
Unlike in years past, scoring was not kept.
• Anthony Mahoungou played Saturday, the only of those injured who returned to the field.
The receiver's day was mixed, however, perhaps because he'd not practiced much due to an Achilles injury.
• A few standouts: Jackson Anthrop, David Blough, Richie Worship, Miles, Eddy Wilson, Da'Wan Hunte and Ja'Whaun Bentley.
