WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue quarterback Robert Marve is expected to play for the first time in nearly a year when the Boilermakers host Southeast Missouri on Saturday.

Marve, a transfer from Miami, started the first three games last season before tearing the ACL in his left knee against Toledo.

Caleb TerBush is still listed as the starter. Purdue coach Danny Hope wouldn't say Tuesday how much Marve would play against the Redhawks, but he said the senior will get more practice repetitions to get ready.

Rob Henry, who replaced Marve last season, was named the starting quarterback heading into fall practice, but he was lost for the season to a knee injury. Marve's slow recovery helped TerBush gain the starting job, and he has been solid.
