Penn State Depth Chart and Injury Report Versus Indiana: For Whom The Bell Trolls

New, 51 comments

James Franklin is staying positive...and also still putting out smokescreen depth charts.

Penn State won last week. I didn't hear anything else about it, and I will continue to assume Everything Is Fine and we won't talk about it anymore. Cool? Cool cool.

Anyway, Jimmy Franks is up to his old tricks again. This depth chart mostly just represents snap counts for the previous week, and is probably not indicative of who will start against Indiana on homecoming. Like I said last week, that is a good thing on Franklin's part. There is no reason to tip your hand etc. etc. It may make this column less exciting, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

On offense, Akeel Lynch and Saquon Barkley are both totally absent. Mark Allen, Nick Scott, and Jonathan Thomas are the listed running backs. Of course, this doesn't mean anything. We still don't know much about Lynch's injury, but expect Barkley to play.  Defensively, Brandon Bell, Marcus Allen, and Evan Schwan have dropped off the depth chart, and while Ben Kline makes his triumphant return. It's not the most exciting set of changes, but it's arguably the weirdest.

Hopefully, it's enough of a distraction to rattle the unflappable Zander Diamont.
