Purdue shifts a few players around offensively this week.

Due to injuries (and suspensions) there is quite a bit of movement around Purdue’s depth chart this week in advance of Homecoming. Domonique Young is definitely out, and probably will be out for the remainder of the season. There is also some shifting along the offensive line:

Offense

WR 7 DeAngelo Yancey, Sr., 6-2, 205, Atlanta, Ga.

21 Anthony Mahoungou, Jr., 6-3, 210, Paris, France

WR 18 Cameron Posey, 5th, 6-1, 192, Boca Raton, Fla.

10 Gregory Phillips, Jr., 6-0, 201, Lithonia, Ga.

LT 66 Cameron Cermin, 5th, 6-5, 323, College Station, Texas

75 Jalen Neal, Jr., 6-8, 315, Tempe, Ariz.

LG 72 Jason King, 5th, 6-4, 310, Little Rock, Ark.

55 Michael Mendez, R-Fr., 6-4, 305, Los Fresnos, Texas

C 53 Kirk Barron, So., 6-2, 300, Mishawaka, Ind.

68 Peyton Truitt, R-Fr., 6-5, 296, West Lafayette, Ind.

RG 70 Jordan Roos, 5th, 6-4, 301, Celina, Texas

55 Michael Mendez, R-Fr., 6-4, 305, Los Fresnos, Texas

RT 79 Matt McCann, R-Fr., 6-6, 314, Fishers, Ind.

75 Jalen Neal, Jr., 6-8, 315, Tempe, Ariz.

TE 88 Cole Herdman, So., 6-4, 251, Leesburg, Va.

89 Brycen Hopkins, R-Fr., 6-5, 239, Nashville, Tenn.

WR 3 Bilal Marshall, 5th, 6-2, 201, Miami, Fla.

13 Terrance Landers, Fr., 6-4, 200, Dayton, Ohio

QB 11 David Blough, So., 6-1, 200, Carrollton, Texas

2 Elijah Sindelar, R-Fr., 6-4, 236, Princeton, Ky.

RB 8 Markell Jones, So., 5-11, 210, Columbus, Ind.

25 Tario Fuller, R-Fr., 6-0, 192, Sugar Hill, Ga.

37 Brian Lankford-Johnson, Fr., 6-0, 195, St. Paul, Minn.

Officially now, Cermin is the starter at left tackle and McCann back at right tackle, with Neal backing up both. Breaking into the two-deep this week is redshirt freshman Peyton Truitt, who is backing up Kirk Barron in the middle now.

At the skill positions Bilal Marshall moves into the starting lineup, but he was already playing a lot anyway. Backing him up is true freshman Terrance Landers, who has played sparingly, but has already burned the redshirt. Either he or Mahoungou could see more run on the outside, while Hazell mentioned there will be some specific sets for Malik Kimbrough now, too.

At running back we have an interesting setup. Jones is expected to return and will still get a lot of carries. Fuller is listed as the primary backup, but did not play at Illinois. Lankford-Johnson is coming off of a Freshman of the Week performance, while Richie Worship at the No. 4 spot has earned carries. Purdue definitely has some solid options here and Jones doesn’t have to get every carry now. If terry Malone keeps mixing things up and gives different looks Purdue might have a really punishing ground game.

Defense

DT 54 Jake Replogle, Sr., 6-5, 275, Centerville, Ohio

59 Langston Newton, 5th, 6-3, 278, Indianapolis, Ind.

NG 18 Eddy Wilson, So., 6-4, 300, Pontiac, Mich.

66 Alex Criddle, Fr., 6-4, 309, Broken Arrow, Okla.

DE 95 Evan Panfil, Sr., 6-5, 270, New Lenox, Ill.

56 Wyatt Cook, R-Fr., 6-2, 240, Westminster, Md.

DE 45 Austin Larkin, Jr., 6-3, 259, University City, Mo.

or 13 Gelen Robinson, Jr., 6-1, 275, Schererville, Ind.

Will 21 Markus Bailey, R-Fr., 6-1, 235, Columbus, Ohio

42 Andy James Garcia, 5th, 6-0, 223, Miami, Fla.

Mike 4 Ja’Whaun Bentley, Jr., 6-2, 250, Glenarden, Md.

16 Garrett Hudson, Jr., 6-2, 245, Tallahassee, Fla.

Buck 36 Danny Ezechukwu, Jr., 6-2, 240, Lithonia, Ga.

29 Jimmy Herman, 5th, 6-4, 240, Carmel, Ind.

LCB 2 Da’Wan Hunte, Jr., 5-9, 188, Miami, Fla.

23 Josh Hayes, Fr., 6-0, 181, Indianapolis, Ind.

SS 3 Leroy Clark, Sr., 5-10, 197, Miami, Fla.

7 Robert Gregory, 5th, 6-1, 225, Chicago, Ill.

FS 27 Navon Mosley, Fr., 6-0, 181, Bloomfield, Mich.

26 C.J. Parker, Jr., 6-2, 205, Menifee, Calif.

RCB 24 Tim Cason, 5-11, 195, Clarkston, Mich.

6 Myles Norwood, Jr., 6-0, 174, Arlington, Texas

The only change this week is listing Cason as the starter opposite Hunte with Hayes backing up Hunte and Norwood backing up Cason. I noticed this past week that freshman Lorenzo Neal was playing a lot of snaps at defensive tackle, more so than Criddle and Newton, so I am surprised he is not listed here more.

Punt Returns 9 Malik Kimbrough, Jr., 6-0, 172, San Jacinto, Calif.

18 Cameron Posey, 5th, 6-1, 192, Boca Raton, Fla.

No changes here, but when you have the Big Ten’s best kicker (for the last week) there is no need to change. Once again, props to Dellinger for shaking off some early struggles to make two huge kicks last week.
