Purdue football: A year later, Henry is healthy but down to No. 3 QB

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Last year, Rob Henry's mangled right index finger was nearly healed as he began Purdue's preseason practices No. 1 on the quarterback depth chart.
Life, and football, were all good in Henry's mind.
About a week before the season opener, however, Henry's right knee buckled on the turf inside the Mollenkopf Athletic Center. A torn anterior cruciate ligament ended his season before it began.
Henry is back, but he will enter Saturday's first practice No. 3 on coach Danny Hope's depth chart behind Caleb TerBush and Robert Marve.
"It's been an interesting year," Henry said. "Heading into last season, I was ready for a good year. A good year for our team, a good year for myself and was really looking forward to it. (The injury) wasn't something I expected, it wasn't something I wanted but at the same time a lot of opportunities opened up.
