Penn State Depth Chart and Injury Report: UMass Edition

New, 11 comments

I'm writing a lot of words about UMass this week.

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Forgive me if I miss something this week, I'm just filling in.

Nothing seems to have changed in the depth chart this week. Although we did learn that should Christian Hackenberg be taken out of the game in a blowout, it would be DJ Crook taking his place. Franklin announced his intentions to redshirt both Trace McSorley and Michael O'Connor. This should lead to some interesting situations once Brandon Wimbush arrives. If both of them stick around through the offseason, that is.

Weekly reminder: Miles Dieffenbach, Ben Kline, and Adam Breneman remain out indefinitely, with knee, achilles, and knee injuries, respectively. However, there have been some reports that Dieffenbach was seen in pads briefly at practice this week. Whenever it is that Miles is able to make his return, it will be a gigantic boost to the offensive line, and will give him a great shot to display what he can do in hopes of being drafted next year.

Now, let us dive into our depth.
