The Virginia Cavaliers football team released the depth chart for the Indiana game, and several noticeable changes are present from the William & Mary two-deep.
There is no Tim Harris listed, and Doni Dowling is now listed as wearing Harris’ #5. Given the importance the coaches attach to each player’s number individually, this looks like one teammate’s gesture of support for a fallen comrade. Harris tweeted on Sunday after suffering an apparent wrist injury during the game.

True freshman Germane Crowell gets the starting spot vacated by Harris. Recent scholarship recipient Brenton Nelson moves to field corner from SABRE, Joey Blount rotates from backup free safety to backup SABRE, and Chris Moore will be a reserve OLB and free safety.
The other big change is at left tackle, where Jack English regains his starting spot after the one-game suspension. It’s the one position that’s now a three-deep, with Dillon Reinkensmeyer the primary backup and Osiris Crutchfield behind them.
