Macarthy to miss at least two months

Dolapo Macarthy 2

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Purdue senior tight end Dolapo Macarthy will miss at least two months with a dislocated left shoulder.

Purdue University announced Monday the extent of Macarthy’s injury suffered in Saturday’s jersey scrimmage.

Macarthy took a hit from sophomore safety Robert Gregory after making a catch. He was down several minutes before being helped off the field. He didn’t return.

After recording 28 passes for 252 yards and a touchdown in 2012, Macarthy saw a reduced role in year one of the Coach Darrell Hazell era. He played in just five games in 2013, recording one catch for six yards. Macarthy made the switch to tight end after the end of last season, and had shown some promise at the position during spring practice.

Officials at Purdue said Macarthy will be re-evaluated in two to three months. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
