Purdue athletes haven’t had any recent issues with coronavirus.

Boilermakers football coach Jeff Brohm tested positive for coronavirus, and the announcement was made for fans Sunday. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Obviously, with the first game of the season taking place Saturday, it’s understandable why fans might be worried. According to Bruce Feldman, AD Mike Bobinski revealed Monday that no athletes have tested positive since antigen testing started September 30.

This is exactly the kind of update fans wanted and needed to hear. The entire Big 10 will start playing football in a few days.

The last thing Purdue or any other team needs right now is an outbreak. That would be a disaster.

From the sounds of it, Brohm is the only person tied to the football program that has anything to worry about, and I’m sure he’ll be just fine.

If Purdue can keep everyone safe and secure, then the Boilermakers should be just fine this season.
