Purdue had a shorter practice on Friday, the day before it scrimmages in Ross-Ade Stadium, and didn't wear pads.
The Boilermakers were inside Mollenkopf for the 11th time — out of 11 practices — this spring.
A couple of quick-hitters from practice with more to come:
• Jeff Brohm said he doesn't anticipate keeping any healthy players out of the scrimmage, which starts at 10 a.m. and is expected to be held in the stadium. But other players who were able to practice lightly Friday — like Anthony Mahoungou and Markell Jones — likely will stay off the field.
• No real news out of Friday's practice, but it was a good day to get basic work on coverages, blitzes, route-running and schemes in in all half-speed periods. The team finished practiced with 11-on-11 work, but Brohm ordered them to go only at a jog pace and didn't want any players to end up on the ground. For the most part, the players followed those orders and kept it clean and without hits.
• Mike Alstott and son Griffin, a commit, attended practice.
