Falcons release official depth chart for Rams’ game 

The Falcons (1-5) are set to play the Rams (3-3) at 1 p.m. Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. 

Backup quarterback Matt Schaub handled the holding duties against the Cardinals, and his leaning hold lead to Matt Bryant’s missed extra-point attempt that would have tied the score with 1:53 to play.

Cornerback Kendall Sheffield, who played well in his first NFL start, is still listed behind Isaiah Oliver and Damontae Kazee as the third cornerback.  

The Falcons added offensive lineman John Wetzel back to the 53-man roster and waived/inured punter Matt Wile on Tuesday.

Wile suffered a right quadriceps injury against Houston on Oct. 6.

Wetzel has been on and off the roster for much of the season as the Falcons have had to juggle four punters through the lineup.

The Falcons also signed tight end Carson Meier to the practice squad.
