Ohio State-Wisconsin: Etienne Sabino still absent from Buckeyes depth chart

If Etienne Sabino is going to lace them up in Madison Saturday, he'll have to do so in spite of Ohio State's depth chart.

Etienne Sabino remains markedly absence from OSU's depth chart.

While perhaps it's the same subterfuge as per usual, there were no updates in Ohio State's depth chart from the Illinois game two weeks ago to the Wisconsin week depth chart released by Urban Meyer and the Ohio State football staff Monday morning. Though it's not out of the ordinary for Meyer and co. to exhibit some gamesmanship in the weekly football pecking order document, if linebacker Etienne Sabino is going to come back and contribute, he's going to have to do so in spite of what the expected personnel would otherwise appear to be.

Bri'onte Dunn, who shined in mop up duty against the Illini, remains absent from the running back depth chart after having appeared in the third spot at the beginning of the season. Dunn, to his credit, does appear as the co-starter at kick return with fellow running back Rod Smith.

Perhaps most curiously, Storm Klein remains listed as the co-starter at middle linebacker along with converted fullback/h-back Zach Boren. Whether this is merely a courtesy remains to be seen as Klein saw the field only scarcely against Illinois.
