With one player returning from injury and another potentially sidelined due to injury, Ohio State has made some tweaks to its depth chart in advance of this week's game against UNLV.
Redshirt sophomore quarterback Joe Burrow is back on the Buckeyes' depth chart, listed as a co-backup at quarterback along with Dwayne Haskins after missing Ohio State's first three games with a broken bone in his throwing hand.
Redshirt freshman middle linebacker Tuf Borland, meanwhile, is now listed as a co-starter at that position after recording 12 tackles on Saturday against Army. Senior middle linebacker Chris Worley still holds the top spot on the depth chart but is questionable to play this week after spraining his foot in the Army game.
Ohio State also now lists Sean Nuernberger as a co-starter for the Buckeyes on kickoffs alongside Blake Haubeil. Urban Meyer said Monday that he was considering putting Nuernberger in that role due to unsatisfactory performance by Haubeil in the first three games.
A few other changes on this week's depth chart:
True freshman Josh Myers has been added to the depth chart as the third-team left guard. Matthew Burrell, the second-team left guard on the depth chart, did not play against Army due to injury. Demetrius Knox, who played as the second-team left guard on the final drive of Saturday's game, remains absent from the depth chart.
True freshman Shaun Wade is no longer listed on the cornerback depth chart. Meyer said Monday that Wade is currently sidelined due to injury.
Demario McCall is no longer listed as a co-starter at punt returner, while Kendall Sheffield has replaced Parris Campbell as the No. 3 punt returner.
True freshman wide receiver Trevon Grimes remains absent from the depth chart despite making his debut against Army. Johnnie Dixon, who missed Saturday's game with a hamstring injury, is still listed among the six co-starters at wide receiver.
