Purdue WR medically cleared for return

Purdue Boilermakers receiver Danny Anthrop has been medically cleared to play football again. Mike Carmin of the Indianapolis Star reported the story.

Anthrop tore his ACL in his team’s loss against Nebraska last November and said that he was ahead of schedule in February.

Today, he is participating in summer workouts and is poised to suit up for the team for his senior season. At the time of his injury, he had 38 receptions for 616 yards and four touchdowns.

In three seasons with the Boilermakers, he has caught 56 passes for 954 yards and seven scores.

With fine size for the position at six feet tall, 191 pounds and the return of quarterback Austin Appleby, Purdue is in a fine position to continue improving under third-year head coach Darrell Hazell.

Purdue was 3-9 (1-7 Big Ten) in 2014 and has not had a winning season since 2011, with no conference title since 2000 under longtime coach Joe Tiller. The Boilermakers open the 2015 campaign on September 6 with a visit to Joan C. Edwards Stadium to take on the Marshall Thundering Herd of Conference USA.
