Purdue loses running back for 4-8 weeks after leg injury

·1 min read

Fifth-year senior Zander Horvath was the workhorse for the Purdue offense in their season-opening victory over Oregon State as he carried the ball 21 times for 81 yards and a touchdown.

Horvath exited Purdue’s game at UCONN on their second possession this weekend and will be out for up to as much as two months according to Boilermakers head coach Jeff Brohm.

Brohm said Monday that Horvath broke his fibula in the 49-0 thrashing of UCONN, a game Purdue was still able to run for 187 yards in. King Doerue and Dylan Downing put up 146 of those yards and one rushing score.
