Purdue and former Plant High QB Robert Marve out for season

Former Plant quarterback and current Purdue starter Robert Marve will miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his left knee, a statement released by the athletic department announced Thursday morning, the Lafayette (Ind.) Journal and Courier is reporting.

The announcement ends days of speculation that Marve's season was over since he was injured in the Boilermakers' 31-20 loss to Toledo on Saturday. The injury was confirmed by the team's orthopedist Thursday, the release said.

For Marve, who led the Panthers to the Class 4A state title in 2006, this is his second torn ACL since arriving at Purdue in the spring of 2009. Marve originally signed with Miami and started for the 'Canes as a redshirt freshman in 2008, but transferred at the end of that season. Under NCAA transfer rules, he had to sit out the 2009 season regardless, but returned to earn the starting job this fall.

"Robert Marve is a big part of our football family," Purdue coach Danny Hope said in a statement. "He has worked extremely hard to be the great player that he is and our heart goes out to him."

Marve completed 67 of 99 passes for 512 yards and 3 touchdowns and 4 interceptions in four games for the Boilermakers (2-2).
