    Justin Durant: Released Monday

    Durant was released by the Falcons on Monday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Durant and William Moore were both casualties on the first date in which teams could make such moves, and neither was as surprise due to the injury-laden seasons each has cobbled together. In particular, Durant missed three games in 2015 with elbow and calf issues, which contained him to 82 tackles (57 solo) and one forced fumble. Considering his age (30) heading into the offseason, the outside linebacker shouldn't have a problem drumming up interest on the free-agent market.

    Falcons' Justin Durant: Racks up 82 tackles on the season

    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.

    Falcons' Justin Durant: Won't play against 49ers

    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.

    Falcons' Justin Durant: Did not practice Wednesday

    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.

    Falcons linebacker Justin Durant (elbow) has been ruled out for the Sunday game against Washington. The Falcons will be without their leading tackler after Durant sprained his elbow during the win against the Texans last Sunday. With the 30-year-old officially ruled out, Joplo Bartu will likely get the start in his place. Bartu recorded three tackles (two solo) in 70 defensive snaps against the Texans.

It's unclear if he'll be able to play through the ailment. If the Falcons' leading tackler is unable to play Sunday against Washington, Joplo Bartu would take on Durant's responsibilities at weakside linebacker.

    Falcons LB Justin Durant injures elbow Week 4 vs. Texans

    Falcons linebacker Justin Durant is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Texans due to an elbow injury. Durant entered the contest as the Falcons' leading tackler with 27, but his ability to pad that total is hindered due to an elbow ailment. If he fails to return Sunday, he'll emerge without making an impact in the box score.
