Northwestern football depth chart: Clayton Thorson still listed on Wildcats' Week 11 two-deep

New, comments

There are changes at wide receiver and on the offensive line.

Northwestern has released its Week 11 depth chart for its Saturday game vs. Purdue, and there are a few changes.

The big note is that starting quarterback Clayton Thorson is still listed, and Pat Fitzgerald has confirmed that he expects Thorson to start.

However, there is shuffling on the offensive line and at wide receiver. Geoff Mogus, who was injured in the win over Penn State, is no longer listed, and Fitzgerald said Monday that Mogus is "out today."

Here's the full depth chart:
