IU releases depth chart for Michigan State game

Recent injuries sustained by right guard Dan Feeney and right tackle Dimitric Camiel are reflected in this week’s depth chart, which was released by Indiana on Tuesday afternoon.

Feeney and Jacob Bailey, who started last week’s loss to Wake Forest, are both listed as first-team options for Saturday night’s contest. The same goes at right tackle, where Camiel and Knight are both listed in the top spot.

With Knight shifting to the right side, Delroy Baker is Coy Cronk’s backup at left tackle. Also, with Bailey needed at right guard, DaVondre Love is listed as Wes Martin’s backup at left guard.

It’s also worth noting that linebacker T.J. Simmons, who has not played in a game this season, is no longer listed on the two-deep. Simmons is dealing with a knee injury and has spent most of his time working with the scout-team players. IU coach Kevin Wilson has said Simmons could take a redshirt year.

Chris Covington is now listed in place of Simmons as a backup to Marcus Oliver.

  1. The possibility of Feeney being out three weeks after a concussion is disconcerting and suggests that it was a very serious concussion. I know the new policies emphasize caution, as they should, but three weeks of recovery is a long time. Hope he is O.K.

  2. Podunk, I share your concern for Feeney, but it’s somewhat reassuring that he’s not being rushed back. He almost certainly has an NFL career ahead of him, and after all he’s relying on IU to prepare him for life after college. If we think about all those retired players suffering from the effects of multiple concussions, it’s assumed that none of them had medical staffs in college willing to sit them out until they were symptom free. Your point that 3 weeks is a long time is well taken, but maybe only by the standards of the past. That said, we all hope he’s ready to play Saturday night. If not, it’s easy to put ourselves in a position to ask ‘what would I want if he was my kid?’
