Falcons release official depth chart for Broncos’ game

Running back Qadree Ollison was active for the second time this season against Carolina and Ito Smith was inactive.

The Falcons (2-6) still listed Smith ahead of Ollison on the official depth chart for Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos (3-4) at 1 p.m. Mercedes-Benz Stadium that was released on Tuesday.

The Falcons had four runs stuffed for 1-yard inside the red zone against the Panthers when the team went 2 of 6 in the red zone.

Ollison and fullback Keith Smith proved to be a tough short-yardage combo last season. Smith also cleared the way for Todd Gurley on his 3-yard touchdown that turned out to be the game winner against the Panthers.
