Falcons release depth chart before Week 12 contest vs. Jaguars


The Falcons have done some shuffling around on their depth chart this week ahead of their road game in Jacksonville.

Most recently, the team signed punter Thomas Morstead after Dustin Colquitt was placed on the club's COVID-19 reserve list.

Last week, the Falcons moved Hayden Hurst (ankle) and Daren Bates (groin) to the team’s injured reserve roster. Both sat out during Atlanta's Thursday night loss to the Patriots.


At minimum, Hurst and Bates will miss the Falcons' next two matchups against the Jaguars and Buccaneers. Lee Smith has taken Hurst's starting spot opposite fellow tight end Kyle Pitts on the team's Week 12 depth chart, released by the team on Tuesday afternoon, before Sunday afternoon's game against the Jaguars. Meanwhile, Bates is replaced by Emmanuel Ellerbee, who was recently promoted from the practice squad.
