Northwestern released its second official depth chart of the season Monday, this one for the Week 2 game against Eastern Illinois, and there are a few changes. The main discrepancies between this week's and last week's are at wide receiver.

Here's the full two-deep:

MIKE Linebacker Anthony Walker Cameron Queiro
WILL Linebacker Jaylen Prater Nate Hall
Cornerback Matt Harris Marcus McShepard
Safety Traveon Henry Kyle Queiro
Safety Godwin Igwebuike Terrance Brown
Cornerback Nick VanHoose Keith Watkins
Starter/1st String Backup/2nd String
Kicker Jack Mitchell Arthur Omilian
Punter Hunter Niswander Matt Micucci

- Austin Carr moves into Cameron Dickerson's starting spot. Dickerson is still "week-to-week" due to an injury sustained in training camp, according to head coach Pat Fitzgerald.

- Flynn Nagel replaces Stephen Buckley as the backup to Christian Jones. Nagel saw the field a fair amount on Saturday. Buckley did not record any stats, but was in uniform.

- Mike McHugh takes Carr's spot as the backup at the other outside receiver spot.

- Jared McGee suffered an injury Saturday. Fitzgerald did not make any announcement about McGee's injury (though he was not asked), but presumably McGee will miss the EIU game. Terrance Brown takes his place as the backup safety.
