Purdue will not be getting the cornerstone of its defense back against Penn State.
Defensive tackle Jake Replogle will miss his third straight game due to a concussion, according to Nathan Baird of the Journal & Courier.
#Purdue's Jake Replogle (concussion) not in pads for warm-ups and, as expected, will miss his third straight game.

Replogle, a 6-foot-5 senior, has 28 tackles for loss and seven sacks in his career. He was also graded as a midseason All-American recently by Pro Football Focus.
His absence should help open things up in the trenches for a Penn State offense that is averaging 375 yards per game and deploys one of the best tailbacks in the conference in Saquon Barkley.
