Depth Chart & Injury Report Week Eight: Ohio State

New, 29 comments

Franklin was forced to make some major changes to the depth chart following the bye week.

A bye week, the announcement that starting RT Andrew Nelson is out for the year, and Ohio State looming makes this depth chart one of the more intriguing ones since Week 1. There was some shuffling of the O-line following the loss of Nelson, with Paris Palmer moving into the starting role at left tackle and Brendan Mahon moving to the starting role on the right side (as he did in the Maryland game following Nelson’s injury) . True freshman Will Fries will back-up Palmer at left tackle, and redshirt freshman Steven Gonalez moves ahead of Wendy Laurent as the back-up left guard.

On the defensive side of the ball, redshirt junior Curtis Cothran moved ahead of Kevin Givens. Cothran made his season debut in the Minnesota game after missing the first 4 games. It isn’t good news that Cabinda and Bell still don’t appear on the depth chart, but they haven’t officially been ruled out either.
