Northwestern week eleven depth chart for Purdue

Once again only a couple of changes on the defensive side of ball

Caylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

Even though Northwestern is coming off of back to back losses to top ten teams, there are very few changes on the depth chart heading into the final stretch of the season.

For the second straight week there are only two changes on the depth chart and they're both on the defensive side of ball. After Jaylen Prater got hurt last week and missed the game against Wisconsin, Brett Walsh steps in as the starter at WILL linebacker. The other change is that Trae Williams is once again the starter across from Montre Hartage. While this change is official, Marcus McShepard will certainly see plenty of the field against the Boilermakers.
