Penn State Depth Chart and Injury Report Versus Ohio State

New, 103 comments

It's exactly what you expect.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Hello, friends. Your friendly neighborhood Bill here, filling in this week for Noel because he went to the Mets game last night and his BAC was somewhere in the 0.70s, probably. Even as a lifelong Yankees fan, I must say: #LGM.

Anyway, the depth chart's out. The notable absences come from the exact guys you'd expect to not be on here, namely Saquon Barkley and Akeel Lynch. The two most interesting notes, imo, are that Andrew Nelson is back to starting at right tackle, while Wendy Laurent is ahead of the injured Angelo Mangiro at center. On defense, Brandon Bell is back to being the starter at the Sam Linebacker, while Jordan Lucas and Marcus Allen are back to being the listed as the safety starters. The special teams are mostly the same – it's a bad week for anyone who expected Tyler Davis to take the kicking job from Joey Julius – but Daniel Pasquariello is listed as the starting punter and Robby Liebel is the main holder due to Chris Gulla's unspecified injury.
