Purdue forward injured at practice

West Lafayette, IN (Sports Network) – Purdue forward Matt Kiefer suffered a
right knee injury during practice Thursday and will need surgery to repair a
torn meniscus.

The 6’10” Kiefer is averaging 12.5 points and four rebounds for the
Boilermakers (1-5). The junior starter averaged 6.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and
had a team-high 23 blocked shots last season.

Junior-college transfer Gary Ware is expected to start in Kiefer’s place
against Colorado State on Saturday.
