Marve was one of the players rogue Miami booster Nevin Shapiro accused of accepting improper benefits in a story first reported by Yahoo Sports.

Purdue officials have already contacted the NCAA and said they were told that Marve’s eligibility would not be in jeopardy.

“A lot of people talk about our quarterback situation saying if you don’t have a starter, you don’t have a quarterback,” Hope said earlier this month. “I disagree. We have two really good quarterbacks (Henry and Marve). Both of those guys are great players, great people, exceptionally talented, outstanding team players, and really want to win.”

If Marve isn’t completely healthy, the Boilermakers may turn to sophomore Sean Robinson or junior Caleb TerBush, who was academically ineligible last season.

Robinson started one game as a freshman but didn’t look comfortable against Wisconsin. He was 41 of 91 for 301 yards with two touchdowns and six interceptions in 2010.
