Ohio State's depth chart for its second game of the season against Cincinnati was released on Friday morning, and it includes a few changes from week one.

Jashon Cornell is back at defensive tackle after starting at defensive end in the season opener against Florida Atlantic, while Tyler Friday is set to start at defensive end.

Tyreke Smith is also back on the depth chart at defensive end, listed as a co-backup with Javontae Jean-Baptiste behind Young, while Rashod Berry is back on the depth chart at tight end, listed as a co-backup with Jeremy Ruckert and Jake Hausmann. Davon Hamilton moves to nose tackle on this week's depth chart, with Robert Landers and Tommy Togiai listed as his backups, while Haskell Garrett and Antwuan Jackson back up Cornell at the 3-technique position.

The "or" designation has also been removed from the Buckeyes' kickoff returners, with McCall now set to be Ohio State's primary kickoff returner. K.J. Hill is still listed above McCall at punt returner, but he was for the season opener as well, when McCall was the returner for all but two FAU punts.

Jonathon Cooper, who is expected to start opposite Young once he is healthy, remains out for this week's game with a leg injury, while defensive tackle Taron Vincent and wide receiver C.J. Saunders are also among the players who remain sidelined.
