As always, the Syracuse Orange depth chart is a reflection of changes made the previous week. So while it’s good to note these things that appear each week, that caveat is definitely a necessary one.
For this week’s game vs. the Louisville Cardinals, we see multiple updates based on what we saw on the field against Wake Forest. You’ll see those changes below:
The depth chart acknowledges that Eric Dungey is questionable and adds the dreaded “OR” between him and Zack Mahoney. In Dino Babers parlance, that usually means the second player is going to start. As we saw last week vs. Wake Forest, that was very much the case here. It’s likely we’ll be waiting until game time once again to know whether Dungey plays against Louisville.
Liam O’Sullivan and Patrick Davis have been on the injury report for weeks, but remain on the second-team here. Given how consistently all five starters have taken snaps this season, that doesn’t have as much impact as you’d necessarily assume.
We saw Ryan Guthrie lining up at defensive end to help out the pass rush (where he excels) instead of Kingsley Jonathan, and that’s the case here now too. Alton Robinson is definitely holding down that top spot, however, as the team’s top sack artist.
McKinley Williams has taken over the “starting” nose tackle role, but we’ll still see plenty of Kayton Samuels, as has been the case for weeks.
