There’s not much shuffling to do on the offensive line, except at one key spot.

Jake Reed, a converted tight end, was competing with Collin Rahrig to replace four-year starting center Will Matte. But with Dan Feeney’s season-ending foot injury, it looks like Reed may slide in at right guard.
The Hoosiers were counting on consistency from the line, considering they had five returning starters — Taylor and Rahrig each started six games at left guard. It will be interesting to see if Reed, or whomever replaces Feeney in the starting lineup, has trouble acclimating.
