Bengals release depth chart before preseason Week 2 vs. Falcons

The Cincinnati Bengals play the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2 of the preseason in a game that will actually see some starters get some run for a series or two.

Ahead of this game happening on Friday, the Bengals issued their second depth chart of the preseason.

Like the first, minor details like Joe Burrow technically being third on the depth chart due to his injury continues to be a staple of the offering.

That doesn’t mean the depth chart is meaningless, though. The small struggles for first-rounder Myles Murphy, for example, are reflected on the chart for now.

Here’s a look at that depth chart before the preseason game kicks off.
