Northwestern depth chart: Wildcats release two-deep for Week 10 matchup with Penn State

New, 12 comments

Northwestern has released its official depth chart for its Week 10 game against Penn State, and there is one major change. C.J. Robbins is not listed after missing the Week 8 game against Nebraska. Jordan Thompson, a true freshman, has taken his place in the starting lineup.

Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said he would list Robbins as day-to-day, and said Robbins is "progressing."

Matt Harris is not listed, but Fitzgerald said he expects Harris to be back. That would presumably push Keith Watkins back to the second string, and bump Montre Hartage off the two-deep.

The other changes of note are on special teams. Here's the complete depth chart:
