A few changes you’ve known about for some time now...

After two straight weeks of identical depth charts, the Syracuse Orange reveal some changes vs. the Wake Forest Demon Deacons that are reflective of recent injury-related shifts.

Among the bigger shifts compared to the last one:

Offense

  • Cody Conway is returned to the starting left tackle spot
  • Colin Byrne is listed as the starting center — where he’s been for several weeks now following Jason Emerich’s injury
  • Emerich isn’t listed at all, which gives Donnie Foster the backup role at that position
  • Evan Adams replaces Omari Palmer at right guard -- where he already was the past two weeks
  • Palmer is not on the depth chart at all, with AJ Duerig listed as the second right guard
  • Jon Burton is listed as the third offensive tackle (on both sides) and will likely rotate in throughout the game

Defense

  • Josh Black started last week, but now he’s officially listed as one of the team’s two top defensive ends
  • Chris Slayton moved back inside to the tackle spot once Kayton Samuels was injured, though this week is the first time that’s reflected in the depth chart
  • Kielan Whitner and Daivon Ellison are listed as co-starters at strong safety, though Whitner’s been injured for a few weeks and Ellison has performed reasonably well in his place

Special Teams

  • Punt return duty is now a split role between Brisly Estime and Sean Riley -- this arrangement began in the second half against UConn, however, and Estime’s taken every punt return since

Again, we’ll see how much these changes hold. Most are simply catching up with injury-related personnel shifts over the past couple weeks. Though it’s always good to see these things written somewhere, if possible.
