Knappe looking iffy for UConn opener; OL shakeup by BYU

At a press conference looking ahead to Friday's season opener against BYU, UConn coach Bob Diaco said that offensive tackle Andreas Knappe has not been ruled out but he made it clear that it wasn't looking good. The good thing is that his lower leg injury doesn't appear to be a long-term issue. He also said that everybody on the two-deep chart (Knappe was removed and Dalton Gifford listed as the starter on the depth chart posted four days ago) is good to go.

Diaco also mentioned Josh Marriner, Arkeel Newsome and Brian Lemelle as potential options alongside Deshon Foxx returning kickoffs and/or punts.

BYU released its depth chart earlier today and there was plenty of movement on the offensive line.

In the depth chart posted at the conclusion of spring camp, the only projected starter still listed as a No. 1 guy is De'Ondre Wesley and even he moved from left tackle to right tackle. BYU is going with true freshman Ului Lapuaho is the starter at left tackle. There are co-starters listed at every position except left tackle. The only other major change I saw was projected starting safety Skye Posey now listed as a second stringer.
