FLOWERY BRANCH -- The Falcons, who will face the Dolphins at 7 p.m. Saturday at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla., released their official depth chart Tuesday.

Kaleb McGary remained in the No. 2 spot at right tackle behind Willie Beavers, and AJ McCarron remained at No. 2 behind Matt Ryan despite being out-played by Feleipe Franks in the exhibition season opener.

Rookie Jalen Mayfield, who received work at the No. 2 left guard spot Monday and Tuesday, is still listed as the third right tackle.

Falcons Arthur Smith said he also wants to look at Jason Spriggs, who listed as the No. 2 left tackle behind Jake Matthews.

(NOTE: It’s considered official because the team released it. The team however considers their own depth chart to be unofficial.)
