Week Two Depth Chart: Even with shocker in Wyoming, no major changes for Missouri

New, 9 comments

Only one change was made to the two-deep this week, so the Tigers will be relying mostly on bounce-back performances against the Mountaineers.

Depth chart analysis

Two-deep stays about the same

Missouri might’ve put up a dud against Wyoming, but no major changes were made to the depth chart ahead of the home opener against West Virginia. The only change as far as the two-deep is at weakside linebacker, where Cameron Wilkins replaces Aubrey Miller Jr. as Nick Bolton’s primary backup. Both Wilkins and Miller have been subject to the injury bug recently, with Wilkins spraining his knee toward the end of fall camp — he also didn’t make it to Wyoming last weekend — and Miller not practicing during media availability Tuesday morning.

What’s most surprising is that Barry Odom and Co. decided to not shake up anything else. With a rush defense that looked completely overmatched after the first quarter and an offense that started to go stagnant during the middle of the game, it seemed reasonable that the lineup would look different.

Apparently, Odom and his staff have faith that the players can have a nice bounce-back performance against the Mountaineers.

Jeffcoat still off the depth chart

Trajan Jeffcoat was left off of last week’s depth chart and failed to make the trip to Laramie, and it looks like he still won’t be ready for the home-opener against West Virginia.

Jeffcoat sprained his elbow early on during Missouri’s fall camp and he’s been week-to-week since. The Tigers expect him to be a starter at defensive end once he’s healthy and back in shape, but that still doesn’t seem to be the case as we move through Week 2.

In his place, Chris Turner and Jatorian Hansford remain the starters on the ends. Once Jeffcoat is back and ready to go, though, expect him to jump right back to the top of Missouri’s depth chart.

Gicinto back in the backup spot

Another player who didn’t make the trip, Dominic Gicinto, is back on the depth chart for the second week in a row.

Long considered one of the Tigers’ top backups and a favorite to replace Johnathon Johnson at slot receiver once the senior finishes his college career, Gicinto was ultimately held back from the trip to Laramie because of a groin injury. He and Barrett Banister shared the backup spot last week (with the -OR- distinction), but with Gicinto not playing against Wyoming, Bannister hauled in three catches for 32 yards behind Johnson.

But Gicinto found his way back onto this week’s depth chart, so unless any other news comes out about his injury, he should make his season-debut against West Virginia.
