The Falcons have released the second depth chart of the preseason as they prepare for the second game in August on Saturday night against the Houston Texans.
There were not many changes. Linebacker Marquis Spruill is obviously off the chart after tearing his ACL in practice last week. He’ll miss the entire 2014 season. Kicker Sergio Castillo was waived last weekend and is now gone.
Newly signed linebacker Darin Drakeford is listed as a fourth-string backup to linebacker Joplo Bartu.
The Falcons still have Steven Jackson listed as the starter at running back, even though Jackson continues to nurse a hamstring injury.
Here is the Falcons’ depth chart:
