Falcons releases depth chart for Week 12 of the 2022 NFL regular season

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Falcons’ depth chart would change. With Kyle Pitts and Ta’Quon Graham on injured reserve, there were no ifs or buts about the change. It came. Now it is here.

To make it short? The Falcons must continue to rely on the depth they’ve acquired at two crucial positions as the season progresses.

With Pitts out for the foreseeable future, the Falcons will look to Parker Hesse and MyCole Pruitt to fill the tight workload. Arthur Smith said Monday afternoon that he thinks Hesse and Pruitt played well against the Bears in Pitt’s absence. He added that Falcons will continue to monitor Anthony Firkser and Feleipe Franks this week in hopes of returning them to active status. Both Firkser and Franks were inactive against Chicago on Sunday. Franks has a calf injury.

Losing Graham is a huge blow to the Falcons’ defensive line. But like Pruitt and Hesse, the depth of Atlanta’s defensive line increased as they faced the Bears and Justin Fields.

The roles of Abdullah Anderson, Jalen Dalton and Timothy Horne expanded in Graham’s absence. The Falcons’ defensive line, playing alongside Grady Jarrett, eventually grounded the Bears attack for 160 yards. That was the first time in five weeks that the Bears offense had collected fewer than 200 rushing yards in a game.

That depth will continue to be depended on as starters’ injuries mean they’re sidelined.
