The Fighting Illini have released their Week 2 depth chart in advance of Saturday's contest against Western Illinois. The two-deep is almost identical to what we saw against Kent State, but there have been a few changes. On offense, Marchie Murdock has been inserted as the starting WR - T (slot receiver), replacing Dionte Taylor. The big update on the defensive side is at STAR, where both Eric Finney and James Crawford are listed as starters.
