Changes in Atlanta's starting lineup
By Pat Yasinskas
PITTSBURGH -- The Falcons have listed three changes to their starting lineup, but none of them are unexpected.
Harry Douglas will start at wide receiver in place of the injured Michael Jenkins. Rookie Sean Weatherspoon will start at linebacker. That’s really no surprise because it had been pretty obvious the Falcons were headed in that direction, but they had continued to list veteran Stephen Nicholas as the starter.
There’s a similar situation at left defensive end. Kroy Biermann will get the start, although Jamaal Anderson had been listed with the first team on the official depth chart given out here at Heinz Field.
