New for 2018, we’re going beyond the box score for our PSN Die-Hards. Here’s the depth chart, participation and more from Pitt’s close loss to No. 5 Notre Dame:
We’ll start with the post-game depth chart, broken down by participants, injuries and non-participants.
After the departure of starting tight end Tyler Sear from the squad, offensive lineman Carson Van Lyn moved to tight end and got the start. He split time with Will Gragg, while Jim Medure and Grant Carrigan saw spot duty. Fullback George Aston and wide receiver Aaron Mathews picked up some of the tight ends’ usual duties in the offense.
At running back, Mychale Salahuddin and Todd Sibley didn’t travel and A.J. Davis dressed but didn’t play, meaning it was a two-man show between Darrin Hall and Qadree Ollison.
Aaron Mathews continued his strong play filling in for Taysir Mack, but again, the group of receivers that includes Donvatius Butler-Jenkins, Shocky Jacques-Louis and Tre Tipton failed to make an impact.
