New faces in the Purdue backfield as season nears

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) When Purdue begins its season this weekend at Marshall, two running backs who have yet to carry the ball in a college game will get the bulk of the playing time.

Sophomore D.J. Knox, a special teams player in 2014, will start at running back Sunday. Freshman Markell Jones will be the backup.

With Akeem Hunt and Raheem Mostert, Purdue featured a hit-or-miss running game in 2014, creating some big plays because both backs possess speed. The Boilermakers missed other big-play opportunities when those backs misread the proper hole or gap to attack.
