Falcons release depth chart heading into Week 17 of the 2023 regular season

Transactions at defensive line and tight end shift around this week's chart.

16x9 (30)

The Falcons have released the second-to-last depth chart of the 2023 regular season, heading into a road game against Chicago. 

The previous chart saw a couple of changes, including Taylor Heinicke moving up in the quarterback starter position. This Week 17 edition sees a few more updates after some transactions.

Atlanta placed Keith Smith on injured reserve ahead of the Falcons game against the Indianapolis Colts. In response, the Falcons elevated tight end Tucker Fisk off the practice squad. John FitzPatrick moved up into Smith's backup spot while Fisk is listed next as a reserve.

The Falcons released defensive lineman Travis Bell last week, previously listed as the reserve behind Albert Huggins and LaCale London. The following day, the Falcons signed Tommy Togiai, who now sits in that reserve spot.

As always, continue to note that the "J" listed next to Cordarrelle Patterson signifies a "Joker" position as the veteran plays a hybrid role.
