Missouri's new depth chart, released Monday, features a few interesting changes. Among them:

*Offensive lineman Jack Meiners, who made his first appearance of the season in Missouri's 24-20 win over Arizona State on Saturday, is now listed as the starter at right tackle. Mitch Morse, who started in that position last week, moved back to his natural position of center, while Brad McNulty - who made his first career start last week - moved to the bench.

Meiners, a senior and one of Missouri's strongest linemen, missed the first two games of the season with a sprained knee. He was listed as questionable last week.

*One week after losing his starting job to senior Brad Madison, sophomore Kony Ealy now sits at the top of the depth chart at defensive end, though he is listed as a "co-starter" with Madison.

*Senior linebacker Zaviar Gooden, who missed Saturday's game with a pulled hamstring, is again listed as the starter at weakside linebacker. Donovan Bonner, who started there last week, is the backup in the middle to Will Ebner.

*Junior James Franklin is listed as the starter at quarterback ahead of Corbin Berkstresser. Berkstresser made his first career start last weekend when a shoulder injury kept Franklin out of the lineup.

*Receiver Rolandis Woodland, who did not play against Arizona State, is listed as questionable. His injury is not known.

*Redshirt freshmen Michael Boddie and Connor McGovern are the backup guards. Nick Demien, who was previously second string, has been moved to third string.

*Ernest Payton, who was previously E.J. Gaines' backup at cornerback, is now third string behind Xavier Smith.

Here's the depth chart, in its entirety.
