Northwestern released its initial depth chart for the Wildcats’ matchup with Duke, and it appears that the offensive line is still banged up.

Ian Park is slated to start at center with Brad North as his back-up. Pat Fitzgerald said Monday that North was available for “emergency use” against EIU if the Wildcats needed him.
After suffering a lower body injury in the EIU game, Adam DePietro is back at his backup LT spot, and Eric Olson is in at right tackle. But Connor Mahoney, who played on the defensive line last season, will get back-to-back starts at left guard if the Wildcats stick with this alignment.
Cameron Dickerson still isn’t listed on the depth chart. Austin Carr, who had a 44-yard touchdown reception against EIU and recently received a scholarship offer, is in one of three starting receiver spots.
There were not any surprises in the defensive or special teams two-deep. Defensive tackle Greg Kuhar, who missed the first two games of the year due to injury, was not listed.
