Depth Chart & Injury Report Week Two: Pitt

New, 28 comments

The following depth chart is based on a true story

James Franklin showed us in Week 1 why we shouldn't put too much weight in the depth chart releases each week. True freshman Yetur Gross-Matos played during he game despite being absent in the depth chart, and other players listed in the depth chart did not dress for the game (Mark Allen and Nick Bowers). Additionally, Andrew Nelson and Ayron Monroe dressed, but did not play. Nelson is recovering from last season’s knee injury, but whatever held Monroe out of the game has not been disclosed.

Update: It appears Monroe was suspended by the team last week, but per the press conference he will be available to play on Saturday against Pitt.

Injuries to Mark Allen and Nick Bowers during the offseason will leave their status unknown until we see them on the field. Allen is no longer listed as a backup punt returner, but he remains a backup RB, so it's hard to place much meaning in the shuffling of backup returners.

Shareef Miller left Saturday’s game during the quarter with an ankle injury, but is expected to play versus Pitt. Nothing else to report on, although this will be updated if Franklin provides any new information during his press conference.

Without further ado:

Penn State Depth Chart vs Pitt 2017

In the world of depth charts, no news is good news, especially coming off a 52-0 win. Other than a couple of dropped passes, I find it difficult to critique any of the performances of the starters unless you're picking nits.
