On Friday our Jerry Hinnen wrote about Purdue safety Landon Feichter who was going to play in Purdue's game against Indiana State with two broken hands. Unfortunately for Feichter he won't be able to play through his latest injury.

Feichter was forced to leave Saturday's game in the first half with a leg injury and coach Darrell Hazell confirmed on Saturday night that Feichter had suffered a broken leg.

Hazell said that Feichter was to undergo further evaluation to figure out whether or not he would need surgery.

While it's not known how long Feichter will be out just yet, he will miss this week's game against Notre Dame and will likely be replaced by Anthony Brown or Evan Feichter, Landon's younger brother.
