Kravitz back

The depth chart for UW’s game this week is out and the only real change is the return of Luke Kravitz at fullback.
He is listed as the backup to Paul Homer after sitting out Saturday with a broken hand.
It’s a not insignificant return as the Huskies have lots in their schemes for the fullbacks and some of that couldn’t be done without Kravitz, who is regarded as the better runner of the two. Still, it will be interesting to see how well Kravitz will be able to run coming off a broken hand suffered in the Syracuse game.
Byron Davenport is listed as a second-team corner, so apparently his hamstring injury suffered against Boise State isn’t all that bad.
Also, DT Wilson Afoa, who sat out a few plays against Boise State, is listed No. 1 at his spot, so apparently he’s okay, as well.
The rest of it looks basically the same. Ben Ossai and Cody Habben remain either/or at left tackle, as do Trenton Tuiasosopo and Donald Butler at middle linebacker, and all three tight ends with Michael Gottlieb listed first followed by Johnie Kirton and Robert Lewis.
In general, the player listed first at the either-or positions is usually the one who starts.
Also of note is that Willie Griffin is no longer included on the list of backup running backs — it reads J.R. Hasty, Curtis Shaw and Brandon Johnson all as co-backups following starter Louis Rankin. That may indicate that Griffin is now on a track to redshirt as he has yet to play this season.
In fact, I would assume now that any true frosh who hasn’t played is in line to redshirt barring injury to other players down the road.
The seven true frosh who have played this season are — Johnson, Shaw, Vonzell McDowell Jr., Nate Williams, Austin Sylvester, Victor Aiyewa and Mason Foster.
At some point later, I’ll break down how that compares to the last few years.
