Falcons release depth chart heading into Week 5 of 2022 NFL regular season

The Falcons depth chart looks a little different heading into Sunday's game at Tampa Bay. And not in a good way.

Cordarrelle Patterson isn't on it, currently on injured reserve with a plan for him to return. Patterson was dealing with a knee injury heading into Sunday's win over Cleveland and played 16 snaps. Head coach Arthur Smith said Patterson had a minor procedure on Monday.


The running back position has been altered by injury, with both Patterson and Damien Williams on IR. Now Tyler Allgeier is listed as the first-unit running back, with Avery Williams behind him. Caleb Huntley, promoted from the practice squad in a corresponding move with the Patterson transaction, is listed as the No. 3 option.

Odds are great, however, that Allgeier and Huntley will see lots of work, with Smith possibly favoring a hot hand during Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Patterson going to IR also means Avery Williams will be the kick returner, a role he mans occasionally and can perform admirably.
