When Purdues medical personnel informed Danny Ezechukwu he didnt suffer a torn ACL in Saturdays scrimmage, well, you can probably guess the rest.

It was a huge relief, the sophomore linebacker said following Wednesdays practice.

Ezechukwu suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee during the scrimmage, but is expected to be in the starting lineup when the Boilermakers open the season Sept. 6 at Marshall. After battling through the initial fears, Ezechukwu is focused on his rehabilitation and resuming practice next week.

I was more scared than I was actually hurt, which I gave off the huge yell, the Lithonia, Georgia, native said.

Hes now feeling fine. Ezechukwu understands injuries are part of playing the sport and hes focusing on his rehabilitation, visiting the training room two or three times a day.
