Junior inside linebacker Blake Bean is day-to-day with an undisclosed injury as is backup inside linebacker Nick Gilbo, a sophomore.
Bean, who missed last Saturday’s game at Western Michigan is not listed on this week’s depth chart for the game Saturday at UMass but Gilbo will backup junior Lee Skinner. Junior Jake Stockman is listed as the starter at inside linebacker in place of Bean.
Stockman, who tied for third on the team in tackles last Saturday against Western Michigan with five, will be backed up by sophomore Travis Pitzonka, the Lancaster product. Pitzonka has appeared in all six games and has assisted on two tackles.
On offense, redshirt freshman Dan Collura will back up senior Jasen Carlson (Southwestern) at left guard in place of redshirt freshman Todd Therrien (Williamsville East) who has been moved to center. Therrien, a former defensive lineman who was converted to the offensive line in training camp, is now ahead of redshirt freshman Andrew Borruso as the backup to Trevor Sales at center.
