Sophomore quarterback Rob Henry underwent surgery for a torn ACL Tuesday in Pensacola, Fla.

Henry tore his ACL during August practice. The surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews, an orthopedic surgeon at the Andrews Institute for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine in Florida. Andrews also serves as the senior orthopaedic consultant for the Washington Redskins.

Henry's rehabilitation will take place at Purdue under the supervision of Dr. K. Donald Shelbourne, an orthopedic surgeon based out of Indianapolis.

The two doctors will work closely on Henry's recovery, according to the press release.

"The two doctors will work as a team to ensure that Henry receives the very best care," it said.

Earlier Tuesday, quarterback Robert Marve was cleared to play in Saturday's game. Marve tore his ACL during the last season and Henry filled in during Marve's recovery.
