We've got it now.
Joe Bergeron and Malcolm Brown are still listed as co-starters at TB. Bergeron is listed first.
Anthony Fera is not on the depth chart this week. Nick Jordan is listed first at PK as a co-starter with Nick Rose.
Ashton Dorsey is the starting NOSE ahead of Brandon Moore.
Chris Whaley is the starter at DT. Desmond Jackson is listed at a co-backup with Malcom Brown.
Jordan Hicks is listed at the No. 1 WLB.
Big one here: Adrian Phillips, Mykkele Thompson and Josh Turner are all listed as the tri-starters at SS.

Updated with the current info. We just got handed the new depth chart.
Jackson is co-backup along with jackson?
Co-backup with Malcom Brown.
Assuming that's great news on Hicks? Or could he still be the 1 but held out because of injury?
Fera seems to be progressing slowly.
Really think Gray earned an opportunity to start this game or at least be listed on the chart this week. Still think JB is a step or two slower this season thus far. He just looks a little slower getting out of the gate in the backfield than he did from last year.
Anyone but Phillips right now would be my choice at SS.
Disagree. Gray did some really good things, but how do you reason that those things were better than what MB/JB have accomplished? Not even close yet
I want to see Turner at SS, I think he can make the plays better then Mykkele and AP
I once had a groin injury that lingered for months and prevented any type of lateral movement. very painful. Was still a bit tweaky almost a year later. No telling how long he might be out but hopefully no much.
Hicks was on last week's depth chart also. It doesn't mean anything.
Fera is apparently a very slow healer. It's getting more ad more concerning.
Not an expert on the X's and O's..but tri-starters at SS....does that mean all three in the game at the same time! What is Diaz planning for Gino!
We've seen plenty of Turner, and he hasn't done diddly besides getting throw around like a rag doll and taking poor angles.
Tri-starters there is just more of the same. None of them are producing, so it might be time to see something else.
We don't win that game without JGray 4th quarter performance. The box score won't show it, but he made runs that Malcolm and Joe simply aren't able to make and at a time when we REALLY needed it.
If Malcolm's healthy his touches should remain about the same, but Gray needs to get more of Joe's touches, especially early in the game.Let Joe take over the role the closer and short yardage back, which is what he's best suited for.
There's nothing wrong with Jordan's leg strength. He just needs to get some confidence going. Of course, as long as we keep scoring TDs in the red zone, I don't care who is kicking the extra points.
Turner got absolutely steamrolled by a blocker at least two or three times that led to big runs or runs after catch. That was ugly to watch.
On Fera, kicking is 90% mental with the other 10% being having the required leg strength. This poor kid has a gravely ill mother who is about to undergo major surgery while also having been out for a couple months with a groin issue. His mental side has to be wrecked right now. Not sure he'll be useful to us at all this season.
Tri-starters is the lamest shit I've ever heard, and frankly neither Thompson or JT are the answer at safety right now.
I'd rather roll the dice and make whole sale changes to the back end. Move Diggs to FS, Vaccaro to SS and let Duke or Sheroid Evans get some on the job training (ideally this would've been explored over the bye week, but that'd make far too much sense).
Diggs is honey badger with better man to man cover skills, and he's being wasted sitting out on an island. Let him roam around center field and let Kenny hang out around the LOS where he is best suited for. It's not ideal timing but it's a move that needs to be made imo.

Not saying that he should get a majority of the carries based on one game between the other two backs, but he was put in a tough situation and he performed in the clutch (4th qtr). I think that merits him being on the chart this week.He has the speed and right now JB seems to be a step or two slower (no question in my mind after watching four games). I'd like to see what Gray could do when he is given a chance to start or split some of the carries early on. How does that hurt?
I think Phillips is just not a true safety. He needs to be the nickle and KV needs to be the safety
Turner wasn't very aggessive tackling, but Thompson seems to cautious and allows passes to be completed in front of him without breaking on the ball. How about Leroy Scott? He seems like the most physical one of the bunch.
I think you are thinking of Byndum.
Leroy Scott is the best tackling, best hitting DB on the team. Not even a thought at SS? Disappointing.
Or they don't want to risk losingn him the 2nd half of the season by bringing him in too early.
