There will be some adjustments on the offensive line now that senior center Matt Bacoulis is out for the next 6-8 weeks with a broken leg and redshirt freshman left guard Jose Cortes is out for the season following shoulder surgery.
Senior Andrew West, the starting right tackle, will back up left guard Peter Bittner, and junior Brian Kelly will back up senior Robert Colpoys at right guard. At center, sophomore Josh Violanti is the starter and will backed up by redshirt freshmen Graham Whinery.
In other moves on the depth chart senior Dane Robinson, who was suspended for the first two games, is now listed the starter at defensive tackle ahead of senior Kevin Johnson. Sophomore John Syty (Clarence) is now the back up to true freshman Darius Willis at outside linebacker ahead of sophomore Fred Branch. Sophomore Josh Copeland has also moved up the chart and will back up junior Justin Winters at outside linebacker.
Senior wideout Naaman Roosevelt is now listed as a kick returner along with corner Dominic Cook. Roosevelt has just one return for 22 yards this season but as a true freshman in 2006 he was a special teams sensation returning punts and kicks.
Senior cornerback Kendric Hawkins (concussion) is probable, wide receiver sophomore Ed Young (shoulder) and true freshman safety Bunduka Kargbo (shoulder) are questionable.
