The Falcons, who will be without defensive end Vic Beasley (hamstring strain/tear), released their official depth chart for the Lions’ game on Tuesday.

The Falcons (2-0) are set to face Matthew Stafford and the upstart Lions (2-0) at 1 p.m. Sunday at Ford Field.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said that rookie Takkarist McKinley, Brooks Reed and Derrick Shelby will help try to replace Beasley in the lineup.

Also, defensive tackle Courtney Upshaw, who’s listed as a defensive end on the depth chart, has an ankle sprain and will not likely play. Defensive tackle Jack Crawford is likely to pick up his snaps behind starting defensive tackles Grady Jarrett and Dontari Poe. 

Ty Sambrailo, who’s listed as the backup left tackle, took over at right tackle when Ryan Schraeder left the Green Bay game with a concussion. He’s likely to start if Schraeder is not released from the protocol in time to start.
