Depth Chart and Injury Report: Michigan Edition

Miles Dieffenbach watch starts...tomorrow.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

For a team with so little depth at so many key positions, Penn State had been doing a good job of staying healthy--at least, since the season started. But last week, Nyeem Wartman's absence pushed Van Walker into a starting spot at linebacker, and Brandon Bell got nicked up, forcing the staff to burn Jason Cabinda's redshirt. The good news is that both appear ready to go this week: the two are listed atop the depth chart, where there are literally zero changes to report.

Ben Kline and Breneman remain out indefinitely with Achilles and knee injuries, respectively. There have been no updates about Dieffenbach's recovery time, but maybe two weeks from now against Ohio State we can get our hopes up.
