Falcons release official depth chart for Jets’ game 

The Falcons (0-2) are set to host the New York Jets (0-1) Thursday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the exhibition home opener. 

Green, a sixth-round draft pick out of Louisiana-Monroe, has not played since suffering a hamstring injury in the Hall of Fame Game against the Broncos Aug. 1. He’s a candidate to earn the kickoff and/or punt returner jobs, battling veteran returner Kenjon Barner. 

“I would say a long way to go is where I feel like we’re at,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said when asked about the returner competition. “It’ll be good to get Marcus (Green) hopefully back into that role this weekend. We’ll take another look at him.”

The returner didn’t get much action against the Dolphins. 

“I think there were three punt returns and we were only able to field one of them,” Quinn said. “It wasn’t a great night for fielding punts and getting a chance to see what that would look like. We definitely have a lot of work to do with that one.”

Here’s the third official depth chart of the season released by the team:
