Indiana's updated depth chart, injury report

Posted by ESPN.com's Adam Rittenberg

Indiana's updated depth chart for Thursday's season opener against Eastern Kentucky is out, along with the Hoosiers' injury report for the game.

Here's the health watch for IU:


  • OL Alex Perry, knee (ACL)

  • DE Fred Jones, foot

  • WR Aaron Burks, ankle

  • RB Zach Davis-Walker, shoulder

  • OL Justin Pagan, ankle

  • CB Donnell Jones, hamstring


  • OL Andrew McDonald, ankle

  • OL Cody Faulkner, foot

  • K Mitch Ewald, oblique

  • S Jarrell Drane, thumb


  • CB Chris Adkins, shoulder

  • S Jerimy Finch, ankle

  • DT Mick Mentzler, knee

Both Pagan and Jones were projected starters, so redshirt freshman Marc Damisch will start at guard and Adkins will start at cornerback against Eastern Kentucky. Depth at offensive tackle might be a concern if Faulkner can't play.

Indiana announced Monday that linebacker Will Patterson, defensive end Jammie Kirlew, left tackle Rodger Saffold and quarterback Ben Chappell will serve as captains for the game.
