The Falcons released their official depth chart for the game against the Buffalo Bills at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Mercedes Benz-Stadium.
While there were no major changes on the chart released Tuesday, there are several possible lineup scenarios for the game due to injuries. In addition, defensive tackle Joe Vellano was added behind Grady Jarrett and cornerback Deji Olatoye was removed.
With Vic Beasley out with a hamstring strain/tear, rookie Takkarist McKinley played 48 of the 70 defensive snaps (69 percent) and finished with two tackles, one sack, two tackles for a loss, a quarterback hit and a batted pass in the 30-26 win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday.
Beasley is not expected back until after the bye week.
Starting free safety Ricardo Allen suffered a concussion on a big hit he laid on Detroit wide receiver T.J. Jones in the fourth quarter. He's the league's concussion protocol program. Quinn said that rookie Damontae Kazee is ready to start if needed. Like Allen, Kazee played cornerback in college and has been converted to free safety.
Ty Sambrailo is ready to start at right tackle if Ryan Schraeder remains in the concussion protocol program.
Reserve defensive tackle Courtney Upshaw, who’s listed in the depth chart as a starting defensive end, didn’t play last week with an ankle injury. His status for the Buffalo game is unknown.
