Purdue football practice report Day 6: Defensive standout Jalen Graham leaves after injury

WEST LAFAYETTE – What we saw, what we learned and what to watch for on Day 6 of Purdue practice:. ▶ Jalen Graham, the top playmaker on the defense, sustained a slight strain to his hamstring early in Tuesday's practice. Graham, who plays nickel, safety and outside linebacker, was reaching for his hamstring as the Detroit native hobbled off the field and was in visible pain. He was trying to walk – or – run it off but with little success. The good news: Graham didn’t need a cart to reach the training room and made his way down the steps on his own. He later returned to the practice field in a t-shirt and shorts and walked slowly up and down the field with a towel over his head. Purdue is three weeks away from the opener and the goal is to make sure he’s 100% ready when Penn State visits. The next practice is Thursday, and we’ll see if Graham participates.
