First off, I hope you all enjoyed the bye week. We’re now on to Week 7, as the 2-3 Atlanta Falcons are preparing to fly south this week and face the Miami Dolphins, who they played two months ago during the preseason.
After weeks of the depth chart largely staying the same, there’s some minor shuffling to the depth chart, specifically along the offensive line.
QB: Matt Ryan, Josh Rosen, Feleipe Franks

As mentioned above, there have been some minor changes to the depth chart heading into Week 7. Arguably the biggest change is that right tackle Kaleb McGary was placed on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list, which makes his status for Sunday’s game unclear. If he were to miss Sunday’s game, Jason Spriggs is the next man up at the position.
You may notice guard Josh Andrews back on the depth chart, as he returned from injured reserve on Monday. Andrews will play backup to Jalen Mayfield, who has seemingly improved since a disastrous, but expected tough Week 1 matchup.
Kendall Sheffield who came off injured reserve two weeks ago is now appearing on the team’s depth chart for the first time. He’s positioned behind Fabian Moreau and Avery Williams heading into Sunday. Aside from those changes, the only named removed was tight end Parker Hesse, who is back on the team’s practice squad.
