Now for some news and notes and wild speculation:

  • There's a couple of additions to the two-deep, most likely due to injuries: Troy Ware has moved ahead of Aaron Burks at Z-receiver. We aren't sure how long Burks will be out, but it looks like he is out for the foreseeable future. True freshman, Thomas Sperbeck, also burned his redshirt, suggesting that Burks will be out for more than just a couple of games. Ware has looked more than proficient filling in, but I doubt he has truly played himself ahead of Burks without the injury playing a major role
  • The second addition is Taylor Loffler. With the loss of Ebo Makinde for the year, another safety was needed to move into the rotaton. What's interesting here is Loffler moved in behind Jeremy Ioane at Strong Safety, with Dillon Lukehart moving over to Free Safety behind Darian Thompson. This might just be an oversight by the Bronco Media Relations folks or the coaching staff doesn't feel the need to label the safety positions, but it will be something to look for during the game
  • Kamalei Correa has separated himself from Gabe Perez as Kharyee Marshall's backup at Stud End. The true freshmen had been listed with an 'OR' tag
  • As expected, Jack Fields moves in behind Jay Ajayi after Aaron Baltazar tore his ACL
  • The Tight End depth chart hasn't changed at all this season, yet Gabe Linehan and Holden Huff have both missed games recently.
