Injury Report

Position Player Status
OT Errin Joe (R-Sr) Out (Shoulder)
LB Domonique Noble(R-Sr) Out (Unknown)
AB Qua Searcy (R-Fr) Out (Ankle)
AB Broderick Snoddy (R-Sr) Out (Hand)
QB Tim Byerly (R-Sr) Out for Season (Knee)
BB C.J. Leggett (R-Fr) Out for Season (Knee)
AB Nathan Cottrell (Fr) Out for Season (Knee)
AB KirVonte Benson (Fr) Out for Season (Knee)
OT Chris Griffin (R-So) Out for Season (Knee)
LB Beau Hankins (R-Jr) Career Ended (Concussions)

There are two additions and two subtractions from this week's injury report. Both WR Micheal Summers and DL Pat Gamble were listed on the injury report last week and played throughout the game, and have been removed from the list this week.

On the other hand, senior OT Errin Joe has been ruled out for the game after leaving the Clemson game earlier with a shoulder injury. Likewise, senior backup LB Domonique Noble left the Clemson game early and will miss this weekend's game. A-Backs Broderick Snoddy and Qua Searcy remain out, and it's still unclear as to whether either one will play again this season.

Offense

Position First String Second String
QB Justin Thomas (R-Jr) Matthew Jordan (R-Fr)
Chase Martenson (R-Fr)
BB Patrick Skov (R-Sr)
Marcus Marshall (Fr)
Marcus Allen (R-Jr)
AB Clinton Lynch (R-Fr) Isaiah Willis (R-Jr)
Lynn Griffin (R-Jr)
AB Mikell Lands-Davis (Fr) TaQuon Marshall (Fr)
Austin McClellan (R-Jr)
WR Ricky Jeune (R-So) Brandon Oliver (R-Sr)
Harland Howell (Fr)
WR Micheal Summers (R-Jr) Brad Stewart (Fr)
Antonio Messick (R-So)
LT Bryan Chamberlain (R-Sr) Will Bryan (Fr)
LG Trey Braun (R-Sr) Gary Brown (R-Fr)
C Freddie Burden (R-Jr) Andrew Marshall (So)
RG Shamire Devine (R-So) Trey Klock (R-Fr)
RT Will Bryan (Fr) Eason Fromayan (R-So)

A few changes here worth noting. First, Mikell Lands-Davis has supposedly showed the coaching staff enough explosiveness over the past two games to move into a starting role at A-Back. Though still raw with blocking, Lands-Davis has been a major asset in the passing game and does well with carrying the ball as well. He replaces former walk-on Isaiah Willis, who will instead play a role coming off of the bench.

The other starter change is at RT, where true freshman Will Bryan will get the nod in place of the injured Errin Joe. This is a case where it would have been nice to have redshirt sophomore Chris Griffin available, although Bryan is a strong blocker as it stands.

The only other movement here is at guard, where redshirt freshman Gary Brown moves into the two-deep, replacing fellow redshirt freshman Jake Whitley.

SS Jamal Golden (R-Sr) Shaun Kagawa (So)
Corey Griffin (R-So)
FS Demond Smith (R-Sr) A.J. Gray (Fr)
CB D.J. White (Sr) Step Durham (So)

There are no changes here from last week's depth chart, outside of the re-insertion of a healthy Patrick Gamble and the removal of an injured Domonique Noble.

Special Teams

Position First String Second String
K Harrison Butker (Jr) Shaun Davis (Fr)
P Ryan Rodwell (R-Jr) Shaun Davis (Fr)
LS Sean Tobin (R-Sr) ----
SS Casey Wilson (R-Fr) ----
H Ryan Rodwell (R-Jr) ----
KR/PR Jamal Golden (R-Sr) Brad Stewart (Fr)

As with the defense, this depth chart is the same as last week's. I do find that surprising, though, given the fact that LS Sean Tobin was benched during the Clemson game in favor of Wilson, after Tobin had yet another bad snap to punter Ryan Rodwell. That's a situation to continue monitoring as the season progresses.
