It was Purdue’s last offensive play of the day.Coach Jeff Brohm told reporters Monday he believed Sindelar had a “slight concussion” and would be monitored in the concussion protocol.If he cannot play Saturday, freshman Jack Plummer would make his first career start against a Horned Frogs’ defense that is traditionally ranked among the nation’s best. Plummer has not thrown a pass in his college career.___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25Copyright 2019 The Associated Press.
