McCarthy, 2 RBs back at practice

Headed over to catch the final hour of Yale's practice this afternoon and the most noteworthy bit of info to pass on is that captain Tom McCarthy was back playing football for the first time since suffering a minor Achilles' tendon injury during Yale's intrasquad scrimmage on Aug. 28.

McCarthy was eased into practice but saw a decent amount of time at left defensive end when I was there.

Also, injured running backs Javi Sosa and Elijah Thomas were also back in action. Sosa was hurt in late in the Union scrimmage while Thomas was nicked up during the week leading into the scrimmage against Union.

There have been no major changes to Yale's starting lineup since the 50-0 win over Union on Sept. 4. The biggest jump might have been made by former starter Alex Golubiewski, who is now pushing Jeff Fell for the starting left tackle spot. Also, Alex Barnes has won the placekicking and punting jobs although the kickoff duties are still being contested.

Here is the tentative two-deep chart as of Sunday
QB: Patrick Witt; Brook Hart
TB: Alex Thomas; Mordecai Cargill
WR: Gio Christodoulou; Deon Randall
WR: Jordan Forney; Allen Harris
WR: Chris Smith; Cameron Sandquist
TE/H-BACK: Chris Blohm; Shane Bannon or Caleb Smith
OT: John Pedersen; Wes Gavin
OG: Colin Kruger; Mike McInerney
C: Jake Koury; Evan Ellis (although Jeff Fell would most likely spell Koury)
OG: Gabe Fernandez; Alex Birks
OT: Jeff Fell; Alex Golubiewski
K: Alex Barnes

DE: Tom McCarthy; Allen Davis
DT: Jake Stoller; Reid Spiller
DT: Joe Young; Chris Dooley
DE: Matt Battaglia; Sean Williams
LB: Jesse Reising; John Pagliaro
LB: Jordan Haynes; Dan Walsh
LB: Will McHale; Wes Moyer
CB: Drew Baldwin; Collin Bibb
CB: Chris Stanley; Kurt Stottlemyer
FS: Geoff Dunham; Marcus Wallace
SS: Adam Money; John Powers
P: Alex Barnes

For those scoring at home, six of the 11 starters on offense are juniors while there are five seniors and five juniors slated at start on defense. Chris Smith and Will McHale the only sophomores listed as starters while the only freshmen on the two-deep are receivers Deon Randall and Cameron Sandquist and offensive tackle Wes Gavin.
