Falcons' depth chart for Titans game: Keanu Neal's replacement named

With Week 4 officially underway, the Atlanta Falcons released an updated depth chart on Tuesday.

The most notable change this week is the replacement of Keanu Neal at strong safety. Neal suffered a season-ending Achilles injury against the Colts and Kemal Ishmael will now step in and fill his role.


Offensively, Atlanta's starting lineup remains the same. While Ito Smith is listed as Devonta Freeman's backup, it's worth mentioning that he and Kenjon Barner are in the league's concussion protocol and their status for Sunday's game remains questionable.

If Barner and Smith are unable to play against the Titans, the Falcons will lean on Brian Hill and Qadree Ollison as a backup to Freeman.

Listed below is a position-by-position breakdown of Atlanta's starting lineup with only the primary backups listed in parentheses.
