BYU Football Releases Depth Chart For Cincinnati Week
Sep 25, 2023, 12:42 PM
PROVO, Utah – BYU football released a depth chart for its upcoming Friday night contest against Cincinnati. Friday’s game will be the Cougars’ first Big 12 home game in Provo.
There was some intrigue to this week’s depth chart as BYU has been faced with sudden injuries in the loss at Kansas.
On Monday at his weekly press conference, BYU coach Kalani Sitake said he was “hopeful” on a few players. But didn’t get into specifics. Defensive coordinator Jay Hill noted they would get more information on linebacker Ben Bywater after he undergoes an MRI on Monday.
Changes to this week’s depth chart
There were some subtle changes to the BYU depth chart this week. At right tackle, Caleb Etienne and Brayden Keim are listed with an OR beside their names. Etienne was benched in favor of Keim last week at Kansas.
Then, linebacker Isaiah Glasker was removed from the SAM linebacker depth chart. Glasker suffered an injury in the win at Arkansas. He didn’t participate last week at Kansas.
In replace of Glasker is Fisher Jackson OR freshman Ace Kaufusi.
Staying at linebacker, within the ROVER position, BYU added Ammon Hannemann back on the two-deep. Following him is Chaz Ah You as the third-string backer at that spot.
Also, at kick returner, Parker Kingston, who was banged up in the Kansas loss, moved up from the fourth option at returner to the second guy behind Hobbs Nyberg.
