New, 3 comments

Slight changes on paper, but big changes in reality.

As the Notre Dame Fighting Irish prepare to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores this Saturday, they released the depth charts. This week there are a few slight changes that are subtle, but could potentially mean quite a bit.

OFFENSE

While the depth chart looks exactly the same as last week, Cole Kmet’s injury does change things up quite a bit with more action for both Nic Weishar and Brock Wright should be expected. Kelly had this to say about Kmet:


“It’s more of a high-ankle sprain. He’s going to be limited. It’s going to take some time. I would think he’s doubtful for this week.”

The depth chart this week gets a slight variation. The “OR” for Bo Bauer and Jonathan Jones is gone. Bo Bauer is now listed as the first man in at the MIKE linebacker spot. As a freshman, this is a huge deal for Bauer for a couple of reasons:

  1. Te’von Coney will be heading to the NFL after this season and Bauer will have 3 years of eligiblity left.
  2. Te’von Coney is going to need some rest at some point this season. His snap count is a little high after 97 plays against Ball State.

SPECIAL TEAMS

39 Jonathan Doerer 39 Jonathan Doerer 19 Jay Bramblett Fr Alex Peitsch 19 Jay Bramblett 18 Joe Wilkins 25 Braden Lenzy
98 Harrison Leonard 98 Harrison Leonard 98 Harrison Leonard 65 Michael Vinson 14 J.D. Carney 23 Kyren Williams 20 C'Bo Flemister

The big news here is that Jonathan Doerer is still the kickoff specialist even though he shanked a kickoff out of bounds for the second week in a row. The small news is that Nic Weishar is now listed as the next man in at Long Snapper over walk-on Michael Vinson. I’m not sure what that means, but the more Weishar — the better.

Editors’s Note: I will put the jersey numbers on the depth charts a little later. Someone asked last week, and I forgot, and then ran out of time. Should be updated late Tuesday night. Thanks.
