Falcons coach Dan Quinn said he anticipates that all of his players will be healthy enough to participate in the team’s practice on Tuesday, its first full-speed session in preparation for Saturday’s divisional playoff game against the Seahawks.

That would mean the return of two starters, tight end Austin Hooper (knee) and cornerback Robert Alford (knee), as well as No. 3 wide receiver Taylor Gabriel (foot). Gabriel and Hooper did not play in the regular-season finale against the Saints.

Here’s the depth chart for Saturday’s game:

(The team calls it an ‘unofficial’ depth chart. But if they are releasing it, for our purposes that makes it pretty official.)
