As mentioned, there were very few changes made to the depth chart this week. The most notable is that Steven Means, who played this past weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, is officially back on the depth chart after missing time due to injury. Parker Hesse, who was a depth tight end, has been removed from the depth chart after being cut in a series of moves the team made on Monday. This likely hints that Hayden Hurst is nearing a return from injured reserve.

There is at least one interesting change. Jason Spriggs is no longer backing up Kaleb McGary at right tackle, and while we’re not sure why, Colby Gossett slides into the backup role. The Falcons have flirted with using him at tackle, and we’ll see what happens if he gets into any games coming up. Also, Cordarrelle Patterson is no longer listed as a depth safety on defense. It’s unclear why they listed him only to remove him a week later, perhaps for humor, but he’s now specifically on offense and special teams.
