Falcons release depth chart for Week 18 of 2022 NFL regular season

Matt Hennessy getting longer look at left guard

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Falcons aren't advancing beyond the regular season, with their season set to wrap on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That doesn't mean they're in pure evaluation mode.

They're still adhering to a merit-based depth chart, where the best players continue to play the most. That has been the case this season, except when injury opens the door a reserve to take more responsibility.


That's the case at left guard, where Elijah Wilkinson is missing action due to a calf injury. That allowed interior lineman Matt Hennessy to take a crack at left guard in Week 17 against the Cardinals. He played well there, despite a sack allowed, grading out well and fitting in with productive offensive line.

That's why we're seeing someone who was a reserve center -- he lost a heated position battle with Drew Dalman this summer -- listed on the depth chart below as a reserve left guard. He had been cross training there during the season, and moved into that spot against the L.A. Chargers with Wilkinson missing that game (and a few others) with a knee injury. Hennessy unfortunately suffered a knee injury early in the game that landed him on injured reserve. This second chance to show coaches he can compete for a starting spot in 2023 will be important down the stretch.

You won't see many other changes on the depth chart below, save the addition of new safety Micah Abernathy. Check it out:
