Simpson battled weight, injuries all season

Tuesday, December 18, 2012 06:40 pm
Purdue freshman forward Jay Simpson has been behind the eight-ball since arriving in West Lafayette last summer with an injured foot and 50 extra pounds of weight. The disappointing year came to a close on Tuesday, as Boilermaker coach Matt Painter announced on Tuesday that Simpson would miss the remainder of the season due to the lingering injury.“Jay has made every effort to rehab his foot in order to continue to contribute on the court this season, but it hasn’t come along as quickly as we would have liked,” Painter said in a release.

Simpson will be eligible to seek a medical hardship waiver.

The Champaign, Ill., native played in each of Purdue’s first 10 games this season, averaging 2.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per contest.

“The most important thing for Jay right now is to get completely healthy so this injury doesn’t remain a problem down the road," Painter said.
