Another week, another iteration of the Florida State depth chart, and we’re still seeing alterations from one week to the next. After beginning the season with 18 uses of the word “OR” on the depth chart, that number shrunk to 9 against Charleston Southern last week. Well, we’re back up into double digits, at 10.

That’s because the backup fullback role has been changed from just Gabe Nabers to include Colton Plante as well. This echoes what we saw Saturday, when Plante was in ahead of Nabers at that spot. On the offensive line, Derrick Kelly is now only listed as a left guard, after previously also being included as Rod Johnson’s backup at left tackle. Ethan Frith is now the second-string LT. A backup also changed on defense: Janarius Robinson had been listed as DeMarcus Walker’s relief at defensive end, and it’s now Jalen Wilkerson. Backups to have retained their spots on the depth chart despite not playing against CSU include WR Ermon Lane, TE Mavin Saunders, and LB Delvin Purifoy.

As expected, George Campbell has been dropped from the Z-WR depth after sustaining a core injury. Conversely, safety Derwin James, who today underwent surgery of his own to repair cartilage in his left knee, remains on the top line at free safety, even though Jimbo Fisher confirmed that James would not play at Louisville. A.J. Westbrook continues to be listed as the second-team option behind James.
