Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Returns to Thursday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant (dehydration) returned to Thursday's game with an IV bandage on his arm, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

The IV indicates that Trufant was likely dealing with cramps when he was forced to exit the game. If the veteran corner is forced to miss any more time, Brian Poole should see additional work at cornerback.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Questionable to return to Thursday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant is questionable to return to Thursday's contest against the Eagles with a calf injury, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

Trufant came up gimpy midway through the third quarter. As long as he is out, look for Brian Poole to see an extended workload at cornerback for the Falcons.

Trufant (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Trufant did not play in Saturday's preseason contest for undisclosed reasons. While it would be nice for Atlanta to provide more clarity regarding his short-lived absence, it doesn't seem like there is any lingering issue. Trufant figures to be on field for the season opener.

Falcons' Desmond Trufant: Continues solid play in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Trufant tallied 41 tackles, one sack, 12 pass breakups, two interceptions, one touchdown and two fumble recoveries across 15 games in 2017.

Trufant had another excellent season for the Falcons, ultimately finishing as Pro Football Focus' 16th-highest-graded cornerback. However, he again proved to be worth more as a real-life football player than as an IDP asset thanks to his low tackle totals. Considering he hasn't topped 42 tackles in each of the past three years, it's hard to place very much fantasy value on the Washington product in advance of the 2018 campaign, despite his reputation.
