Falcons release depth chart heading into Week 12 of the 2023 regular season

This edition sees another change at quarterback after Arthur Smith announced the starter coming out of the bye.

The Falcons return from the bye week with a fresh depth chart ahead of their Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

Desmond Ridder was listed as the first quarterback for nine depth charts of the regular season before the first change-up in the last edition when Taylor Heinicke assumed the spot. Now, Ridder re-takes the QB1 spot after Arthur Smith announced Ridder the starter for the rest of the season.

As a reminder, Cordarrelle Patterson's "J" position stands for "Joker," as the veteran fits into multiple roles.

Atlanta will face the Saints this Sunday at 1 p.m. at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
