How does the depth chart look after the bye week?

After the bye week we have a new depth chart, though given how coy Purdue plays it with injuries there may not be a lot to say:

Offense

QB

  1. Elijah Sindelar - Sr. (5)
  2. Jack Plummer - Fr. (RS)

RB

  1. Zander Horvath - So.
  2. King Doerue - Fr.
  3. Da’Joun Hewitt - Fr.

WR

  1. Jared Sparks - Jr.
  2. David Bell - Fr.

LT

  1. Grant Hermanns - Jr.
  2. Eric Miller - Fr. (RS)

LG

  1. Alex Criddle - Sr.
  2. Jimmy McKenna - Fr. (RS)

C

  1. Viktor Beach - So.
  2. Will Bramel - Fr. (RS) OR Sam Garvin - So.

RG

  1. Matt McCann - Sr. (5)
  2. DJ Washington - So. OR Mark Stickford - So.

RT

  1. Will Bramel - Fr. (RS)
  2. Matt McCann - Sr. (5)

TE

  1. Brycen Hopkins - Sr. (5)
  2. Payne Durham - Fr. (RS)

WR

  1. Rondale Moore - So.
  2. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.

WR

  1. Amad Anderson - Fr. (RS)
  2. Milton Wright - Fr.

Officially there are not any changes, but having Sindelar and McCann listed at least looks good. We’ll see more about their status after today’s presser and as the week goes on.

Defense

DE

  1. Derrick Barnes - Jr.
  2. Kai Higgins - Sr.

DT

  1. Lawrence Johnson - Fr. (RS)
  2. Jack Sullivan - Fr. (RS) OR Jeff Marks - So.

DT

  1. Anthony Watts - Jr.
  2. Giovanni Reviere - So.

DE

  1. George Karlaftis - Fr.
  2. Branson Deen - Fr. (RS)

LB

  1. Jaylan Alexander - So.
  2. Kieren Douglas - So.

LB

  1. Ben Holt - GS
  2. Cornel Jones - Jr.

LB

  1. Cornel Jones - Jr.
  2. Jaylan Alexander - So.

CB

  1. Kenneth Major - So.
  2. Cory Trice - Fr. (RS)

FS

  1. Navon Mosley - Sr.
  2. Brennan Thieneman - Jr.

SS

  1. Jalen Graham - Fr.
  2. Marvin Grant - Fr.

CB

  1. Dedrick Mackey - So.
  2. Simeon Smiley - Jr.

Alexander officially moves into the starting lineup to replace Bailey, which is big against a run heavy team like Minnesota. Jones and Holt will be the tow linebackers in on nickel packages, but Alexander represents how Purdue is thin now at ‘backer since he is also the backup to Jones.

Special Teams

K

  1. J.D. Dellinger - Jr.
  2. Chris van Eekeren - Fr.

P

  1. Brooks Cormier - Fr.
  2. Zac Collins - So.

LS

  1. Nick Zecchino - Jr.
  2. Brooks Royal - So.

Holder

  1. Danny Carollo - Jr.
  2. Zac Collins - So.

Kickoff Returns

  1. Rondale Moore - So.
  2. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.

Punt Returns

  1. Rondale Moore - So.
  2. Jackson Anthrop - Jr.

I find it interesting that Collins punted twice against TCU, but he only had a 38.5 yard average. Cormier is still the guy there to be sure. Other than that, no changes here, either.

As always, this depends on the injury outlooks for everyone. Sindelar, Sparks, and McCann are the biggest. Also, I find it interesting that Anthrop is not on the RB depth chart, either. We have no official update injury-wise:
