With Branden Bowen out for the season after fracturing his tibia and fibula last week against Maryland, Ohio State is listing co-starters at the right guard position on this week's depth chart for its road trip to Nebraska.
Matthew Burrell, who was previously listed as the backup left guard, is now listed as a co-starter at right guard along with Demetrius Knox, who was previously absent from the depth chart. Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said Tuesday that there is a "wide open" competition this week to replace Bowen in the lineup between Burrell, Knox and Malcolm Pridgeon, who is now listed as the backup left guard after being listed as the backup right guard last week.
Kendall Sheffield is listed as an outright starter at cornerback for this week's game, with regular co-starter Damon Arnette suspended for the first half against Nebraska following a targeting ejection. Erick Smith is back on the depth chart as a backup safety after missing Ohio State's last two games for undisclosed reasons, while Dre'Mont Jones is back on the depth chart as a starting defensive tackle after missing Ohio State's last two games due to a leg injury.
Other notes from this week's Ohio State depth chart, which can be found below:
- Sean Nuernberger and Blake Haubeil are now listed as co-starters at kickoff specialist. Meyer said Tuesday that there is an ongoing competition between the two kickers for that role.
- Tuf Borland is still listed as a co-starter at middle linebacker along with Chris Worley, who has missed Ohio State's last three games due to a sprained foot.
- True freshmen Josh Myers, Wyatt Davis and Tate Martell are still listed on the depth chart as backups although they have yet to play this season.
- Co-third-string running back Antonio Williams is back on the depth chart after returning last week from an undisclosed injury.
- Wayne Davis, who replaced Erick Smith on the depth chart at safety last week, remains listed on the depth chart as a third-string safety. Jahsen Wint, who played over Davis as a backup safety against Maryland, remains absent from the depth chart.
- Ohio State's top four defensive ends are now listed as "OR" instead of "AND/OR," as Ohio State has not started a game with all of its top four defensive ends on the field since the first two weeks of the season.
- K.J. Hill is now listed as the backup kickoff returner instead of a co-starter at the position, as he has yet to field a kickoff this year.
