One week after recording his first career sack, Tyreke Smith could potentially make his first career start for Ohio State on Saturday.

With Jonathon Cooper still sidelined, Smith is listed as a co-starter with Tyler Friday at the defensive end spot opposite Chase Young for this week's game at Indiana.

Friday started for the Buckeyes last week against Cincinnati, but played only 15 snaps against the Bearcats while Smith played 21, second-most behind Young among all defensive ends.

The only other change to this week's depth chart from last week comes at the bullet position, where Justin Hilliard is listed as Brendon White's backup in place of Jahsen Wint, who is unavailable for this week's game after suffering an injury on special teams against Cincinnati. Hilliard is set to play for the first time this season after rupturing his Achilles in March.

Tuf Borland and Baron Browning are still listed as co-starters at middle linebacker, while Austin Mack and Chris Olave are still co-starters at Z receiver.
