Most teams release a two-deep depth chart every week during the season, and this page reflects whatever the team puts out if they decide to post one at all. Unlike the NFL, there is no consequence for teams to mislead on depth charts and injuries to potentially gain an advantage.
I watch a lot of press conferences and have gotten pretty good at identifying the coaches who can be trusted and those who cannot. After tracking this stuff for the last few years, I can tell you the name of the biggest violator of quarterback misinformation rhymes with Shmimbo Shmisher.

This will never be perfect without a regulated system, but I put in the time and research to make sure this is the most accurate resource for QB injury and depth chart news on the internet.
A few notes on my injury designations:
Questionable — Player suffered an injury in the previous game or has yet to return from injury.
Probable — Player suffered an injury but played and looked reasonably healthy in the previous game.
Out — Player is out indefinitely or will miss the rest of the season.
A few notes on eligibility:
Players may play up to 4 games in a season without it counting toward a year of eligibility if they have a redshirt available.
2020 COVID season didn’t count toward a year of eligibility.
Years of eligibility shows years left heading into the 2024 season (except Michigan and Washington).
*Indicates redshirt is still available to use.
I’ll add 2024 quarterbacks that signed during the Early Signing Period in next week’s update.

Monday, January 8
NOTES: Morris entered the transfer portal but will stay through the College Football Playoff. Johnson and Mack were able to use this as a redshirt season.
Additions: None | Departures: None
NOTES: Orji rotated in for three snaps in his usual role as a rushing threat in Monday’s 27-20 OT win over Alabama. The Wolverines do not release a depth chart, but my best guess is Tuttle as the No. 2 option if McCarthy goes down. McCarthy has not announced 2024 plans, and Michigan has not been active in the transfer QB market.
2024 QB Rooms
NOTES: Busha played four games and played extended snaps in the regular season finale.
NOTES: Bullock started a few games when Irons suffered a season-ending injury in 2023 but reverted back to his role as a rushing threat behind Undercuffler.
NOTES: Milroe confirmed to The Next Round he’ll return in 2024.
