Missouri heads to Ohio to take on Matt Campbell's Toledo Rockets on Saturday. This afternoon, the Tigers released this week's game notes. Here's the depth chart.

Offense

QB
Maty Mauk (6'0, 195, So.)
Eddie Printz (6'2, 215, RSFr.)
Corbin Berkstresser (6'3, 220, Jr.)

No changes here. The perfect-world goal was for both Printz and Berkstresser to have seen a bit of action against South Dakota State. Alas.

RB
Russell Hansbrough (5'9, 190, Jr.) -OR-
Marcus Murphy (5'9, 190, Sr.)
Morgan Steward (6'0, 210, So. -- DOUBTFUL)
Ish Witter (5'10, 190, Fr.)
Tyler Hunt (5'11, 215, Jr.)

Steward's still doubtful. Yuck.

WR-X
Bud Sasser (6'2, 220, Sr.)
J'Mon Moore (6'3, 190, RSFr.)

WR-H
Jimmie Hunt (6'0, 205, Sr.)
Gavin Otte (5'10, 200, Sr.)
Lawrence Lee (5'10, 180, Fr.)

WR-Z
Darius White (6'3, 205, Sr.)
Wesley Leftwich (6'1, 200, Jr.)
Nate Brown (6'3, 205, Fr.)

TE
Sean Culkin (6'6, 245, So.)
Clayton Echard (6'5, 260, Jr.)
Jason Reese (6'5, 240, RSFr.)

Again, no changes. And again, you'd have loved for the freshmen to get a few more snaps last week.

LT
Mitch Morse (6'6, 305, Sr.)
Nate Crawford (6'5, 290, RSFr.)

LG
Anthony Gatti (6'6, 305, Sr.)
Jordan Williams (6'3, 295, So.)

C
Evan Boehm (6'3, 320, Jr.)
Brad McNulty (6'4, 305, Jr.)

RG
Mitch Hall (6'5, 310, Jr.)
Stephen Carberry (6'5, 300, Sr.)

RT
Connor McGovern (6'4, 300, Jr.)
Taylor Chappell (6'5, 300, Jr.)
Clay Rhodes (6'5, 290, RSFr.)

Not a single change on the offensive side of the ball. The more boring these posts are, the fewer injuries Missouri has to deal with this year.

Defense

DE
Markus Golden (6'3, 260, Sr.)
Rickey Hatley (6'4, 285, So.)
Marcus Loud (6'4, 260, RSFr.)

DT
Matt Hoch (6'5, 295, Sr.) -OR-
Harold Brantley (6'3, 280, So.)

NG
Lucas Vincent (6'2, 300, Sr.)
Josh Augusta (6'4, 335, So.)

DE
Shane Ray (6'3, 245, Jr.)
Charles Harris (6'3, 255, RSFr.)

A SLIGHT CHANGE! Rickey Hatley is now listed at No. 2 end instead of No. 3 DT. I'll pause to allow you to get your bearings.

WLB
Kentrell Brothers (6'1, 240, Jr.)
Darvin Ruise (6'1, 235, Sr.)

MLB
Michael Scherer (6'3, 230, So.)
Eric Beisel (6'3, 225, RSFr.)

SLB
Donavin Newsom (6'2, 230, So.)
Clarence Green (6'0, 225, Jr.)

MORE CHANGES! Just kidding, no changes. But allow me to say this here: I really liked the game Mike Scherer had on Saturday. Only Markus Golden had more tackles, and he's Markus Golden, the most active, all-100-yards DE Missouri has had since Justin Smith. We'll see how well Scherer does against a more spread-out, high-tempo offense this week.

CB
John Gibson (6'0, 190, So.)
David Johnson (5'11, 195, Jr.)

CB
Aarion Penton (5'10, 185, So.)
Kenya Dennis (6'0, 195, Jr.)
Logan Cheadle (5'10, 170, Fr.)

CHANGES! Kenya Dennis was backing up John Gibson last week, and now he's backing up Penton! Mind: blown.

SS
Braylon Webb (6'0, 200, Sr.)
Duron Singleton (6'1, 210, Sr.)
Anthony Sherrils (6'0, 190, RSFr.)

FS
Ian Simon (6'0, 195, Jr.)
Cortland Browning (6'1, 205, Jr.)
Thomas Wilson (5'10, 190, Fr.)

All eyes on Duron Singleton this week; he should get quite a bit of playing time as Mizzou's nickel back against the Toledo offense.

Special Teams

K
Andrew Baggett (6'1, 215, Jr.)
Nick Coffman (5'11, 175, So.)

Still Baggett.

P
Christian Brinser (6'2, 195, Sr.)
Andrew Baggett (6'1, 215, Jr.)

Still Brinser.

KR
Ian Simon (6'0, 195, Jr.)
John Gibson (6'0, 190, So.)

John Gibson moves to No. 2 here as last week's No. 1, Ian Simon, is gone from the list. No idea how or why he was the No. 1 guy listed, however, as Murphy was returning kicks.

PR
Marcus Murphy (5'9, 190, Sr.)
Aarion Penton (5'10, 185, So.)

Still Murphy.
