NOTE: The QB depth chart & injury notebook includes the latest info on every quarterback room still competing in a College Football Playoff or bowl game. This post is updated daily on the site through this link. For the 2024 QB depth chart & injury notebook for teams not participating the postseason, click here.
The QB depth chart & injury notebook includes every team as an abbreviated version of what you get in the College Football QB Newsletter. Every summary you get in the daily newsletter is copied onto this page and trimmed down to one sentence.
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.
Postseason games (conference championships, bowl games, College Football Playoff) do not count when it comes to games played for those looking to redshirt. Everybody can play in the postseason.
2020 COVID season didn’t count toward a year of eligibility.
Years of eligibility shows years left heading into the 2023 season.
Additions and departures include players who joined or left the team after the start of the 2023 season.
*Indicates redshirt is still available to use.
Snap count info is via Pro Football Focus.
