WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue quarterback Elijah Sindelar has received an additional year of eligibility by the NCAA.
Sindelar now has two years of eligibility left. It's unclear if he will use the sixth season in 2020 and instead pursue the NFL.
Sindelar was limited to Purdue's first two games of last season due to tendinitis in his left knee — the same knee he suffered a torn ACL in 2017. Sindelar played the final three games of the season with the injury including the Boilermakers' Foster Farms Bowl victory over Arizona in which he was named MVP.
Sindelar, the presumable starter for 2019, has started nine career games at Purdue.
