Durant finished the season with 82 tackles and a forced fumble in 13 games with the Falcons in 2015. Durant had a solid season, and he played 62.5 percent of the total defensive snaps, although that doesn't account for the three games he missed, so he was a regular presence on the defensive side of the ball. Only Paul Worrilow had more tackles for the Falcons this season. Durant enters the 2016 season in the final year of his contract.
Durant (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in San Francisco. Durant will likely be replaced in the starting lineup by either Nathan Stupar or Joplu Bartu, neither of whom warrants IDP consideration. Durant has 40 tackles in six appearances, but he only played a few snaps in one of those games and has otherwise been a solid IDP.
Durant (calf) did not practice Wednesday. The seriousness of Durant's injury is a bit unclear at this point, so the team likely held Durant out of practice as a precaution so he's ready in time for Sunday's matchup against the 49ers. Durant's status should be monitored throughout the week, as he could be a solid IDP option against a struggling 49ers team and their newly-named starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert.
Durant (elbow) is active Sunday against the Titans. Durant was unable to practice Wednesday and Thursday due to the ailment, but he was a full participant Friday and will slot right back into the starting lineup. He's been a serviceable IDP option, posting at least eight tackles in three of four games.
Durant was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable ahead of Sunday's game against the Titans. Durant has missed the Falcons' past two games due to an elbow injury, but appears poised for a return to the starting lineup this weekend. Prior to his recent stint on the sidelines, the veteran Durant totaled a useful 28 tackles through Atlanta's first four games, including three games of at least eight stops.
