Purdue linebacker Markus Bailey will miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury suffered in practice.

Coach Jeff Brohm told reporters on Wednesday that Bailey sustained the injury in a non-contact drill on Tuesday.

A fifth-year senior, Bailey has had an injury-riddled career with the Boilermakers. He had hip surgery in the offseason and earlier had knee surgery.

“He’s been a tremendous player for us and worked extremely hard in the offseason to overcome a hip surgery,” Brohm told reporters. “He was getting ready to have an outstanding year.”

Bailey, a team co-captain, could seek a sixth year of eligibility, Brohm said.

He has played 43 games in his Purdue career and recorded 327 tackles, 13.5 sacks and six interceptions.

Purdue (1-1) hosts TCU (1-0) on Saturday.
