Because the Syracuse Orange have been decimated with injuries, there have usually been a couple of changes to the depth chart in order to reflect the personnel (or lack thereof) that the Orange have at their disposal. Perhaps luckily, that doesn’t seem to be the case for SU’s game against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
Here is Syracuse's depth chart for the Wake Forest game on Saturday. For the first time in quite some time, there are no changes to report.— Christian De Guzman (@CTDeGuz) October 27, 2020

A weird sense of stability now enters the Syracuse camp as the two deep remains unchanged. As always, the depth charts released by Syracuse Athletics under Dino Babers are often a reflection of how the team lined up in the previous game. This means that potential injuries suffered during the Clemson game won’t be reflected here.
That means that the status of two key playmakers -- Sean Tucker and Trill Williams — is still unknown. Tucker left the Clemson game with what appeared to be an ankle or lower-leg injury and Williams didn’t take a snap against the Tigers. Their availability will be something to monitor on Saturday.
Of note as well, Taj Harris is still on the depth chart. The wide receiver didn’t travel with the team to Clemson for undisclosed reasons, but it is likely that he was suspended by the program for violating team rules after he was shown making a rude gesture towards the end of the Liberty game. For all intents and purposes, Harris will most likely be available against the Demon Deacons.
Because Syracuse is back at home, it’ll be interesting to scan the sideline and observe once again who actually is dressed and who isn’t to get a true feel of who’s healthy for the Orange.
