Falcons release depth chart before Week 15 contest vs. 49ers

Hayden Hurst back in the starting lineup after return from IR

Depth Chart - Dec14

Ahead of their upcoming matchup against the 49ers in San Francisco, the Falcons saw few changes to their depth chart since. The biggest change comes with the return of Hayden Hurst to his starting tight end spot. After recovering from an ankle injury he suffered late in the Week 10 Dallas game, Atlanta activated Hurst from injured reserve against Carolina, where he caught a pass from Matt Ryan for a touchdown.


Other changes to this week's depth chart include shuffling Lee Smith to the secondary tight end position behind starter Kyle Pitts, the addition of Qadree Ollison as a third-string running back and the removal of Emmanuel Ellerbee as a secondary linebacker due to his placement on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

That's all for this week's depth chart adjustments. Check out the full depth chart below:
