Quick Count: Purdue spring football Day 14

The Boilermakers held their last non-spring game practice on Wednesday, going for more than two hours inside Mollenkopf.

They'll now have a couple days before Saturday's 1 p.m. kickoff for the spring game. Following are notes on Wednesday's 14th practice:

• Purdue's offense, like much of the spring, was disjointed, with a number of wide receiver drops — perhaps close to double-digits — and general lax play by the offense that left Jeff Brohm to explode at one point. More in the analysis later.

• Tight end Brycen Hopkins was back at practice on Wednesday, after missing Monday while getting a tooth removed. The sophomore also has an A/C joint sprain, but Brohm says he is 50/50 for Saturday's game.

It's likely that the rest of the players who missed Wednesday, like longer-term injuries to Austin Larkin (ankle), D'J Edwards (hamstring), Jarrett Burgess (unknown) and Brian Lankford-Johnson (hamstring), will be on the sideline on Saturday. The others, of course, who didn't participate (like Lorenzo Neal, Matt McCann, Josh Hayes) in any team drills during practices also won't be available.

Running back Markell Jones (back) says he's likely to play, but probably only during thud periods.

• Brohm says the spring game will pit 1s vs. 1s, 2s vs. 2s, etc., in a modified scoring system, rather than traditional drafted teams.
