You probably noticed that DT Sheldon Richardson isn't listed. That's because at the time of the depth cart being published, he was still considered ineligible to play. Gary Pinkel expects him to be there on August 3rd for reporting day and to start practicing with the squad on August 4th. Updates to the depth chart will be made accordingly if he is eligible to play.
