Few changes were in store for the Michigan week's depth chart, but after a solid afternoon against Wisconsin, Etienne Sabino returned to his rightful place as the starter at Sam linebacker.
Now possessed with an eleven game sample size, we can draw a pretty well founded, thorough conclusion: Urban Meyer's depth charts don't mean a whole heck of a lot. None the less, as is customary on Monday's, the team released its depth chart for Michigan week.
The only change from last week to this one (which more than anything reflects the health of the team as a whole), is the return of Etienne Sabino to the starting Sam linebacker spot. Sabino of course started Saturday against Wisconsin and put in an admirable effort after missing four weeks with a broken leg. He'd been absent from last week's depth chart, but Meyer announced at his weekly press conference an hour and a half after its release that Sabino would be available and that he expected him to start against the Badgers.
Perhaps most interestingly, Bri'onte Dunn is listed as one of the starting kick off returners, though he was unavailable for the Wisconsin game due to an injury of his own. Meyer should provide details within the hour as to his status for The Game.
