As you can see above, there were minimal changes made to the Falcons’ depth chart this week. There were no changes on offense and the only change on defense was the removal of linebacker Steven Means and addition of Dante Fowler. Means was placed on injured reserve last week, and in a corresponding move, the Falcons activated Fowler from injured reserve.
Look for some more changes ahead of Thursday’s game though, as the Falcons will likely be without Cordarrelle Patterson for a few weeks due to a high ankle sprain. With Patterson out, expect to see more of Wayne Gallman and a likely promotion of a running back from the practice squad.
