UPDATED: Falcons release ‘official’ depth chart for the Broncos game


Updated: With signing of Hawk, release of Schofield and Weatherspoon going to IR.

FLOWERY BRANCH -- The Falcons (3-1) released their official depth chart for the Broncos (4-0)  game, which is set for 4:05 p.m. on Sunday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium.

We added A.J. Hawk to the linebacker group and Jalen Collins to the cornerback unit. We'll update the depth chart when the Falcons make their corresponding roster moves today.

(The team calls it an ‘unofficial’ depth chart. But if they are releasing it, for our purposes that makes it pretty official.)
