MarQueis Gray is not on the Gophers' injury list, which was issued after Thursday's practice, so the possibility exists that he will play Saturday at Purdue. On the other hand, the junior quarterback wasn't ruled out of last week's game at Michigan, either, and didn't suit up after his left big toe remained sore during warmups.
Starting right tackle Jimmy Gjere is out, however, after suffering a concussion last weekend, and senior cornerback Troy Stoudermire will miss his second straight game with a fractured left forearm.
Here's the Gophers' official injury list for Saturday:
LB Brendan Beal - knee
OL Josh Campion - head
OL Jimmy Gjere - head
DT Harold Legania - foot
OL Zach Mottla - head
DE Leston Simpson - head
CB/KR Troy Stoudermire - arm

He was the Star Tribune’s main college football editor on the copy desk for nearly two decades before returning to reporting in August 2017 as the beat writer for Gophers football. Randy has covered a Rose Bowl (Joe Paterno’s 1994 Penn State team), and he covered a John Gutekunst-coached Gophers team that missed out on the 1990 Weed-Eater Bowl.

IMG Academy teammates Curtis Dunlap, a 6-4, 368-pound, four-star guard, and Daniel Faalele, a 6-9, 400-pound, three-star tackle, both gave verbal commitments to Minnesota during their official visit Saturday.
