The Falcons got a starting edge rusher back last week but lost another. That wasn't part of the Falcons' plan to make the position group whole by bringing Dante Fowler off injured reserve in time to play the Dallas Cowboys.
Having him take Steven Means' roster spot was surely a disappointment, but a necessary move with the veteran being moved to injured reserve with a knee injury.
Fowler has taken Means' starting spot opposite Ade Ogundeji on the team's Week 11 depth chart, released by the team on Monday afternoon, before Thursday night's game against New England.
That was the only change, providing relative calm after tons of roster moves the previous week. Few changes is also not a shock considering the Falcons' quick turnaround for a midweek game.
