Cowboys' Justin Durant: Likely starter at middle linebacker in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Durant is expected to start at middle linebacker in Week 1 with Anthony Hitchens (knee) out for the first half of the season, David Helman of reports.

Both Durant and Jaylon Smith will see action in the middle, but the Cowboys don't intend on accelerating Smith's recovery plan from the nerve damage in his knee, which will keep him on a limited snap count to begin the year. Durant likely will handle the bulk of the action on running downs, while Smith slots in primarily on nickel packages, and the timeshare should make both very risky IDP plays as they cut into each other's fantasy value.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Durant (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday after passing his physical, Rob Phillips of reports.

Durant began training camp on the Non-Football Injury list with an undisclosed issue. The veteran played in 13 games for the team last season, totaling 37 tackles and three passes defensed in the process. He projects to provide depth at linebacker heading into the season.

Cowboys' Justin Durant: Sitting out HOF Game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Durant (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game, Jon Machota of the Dallas News reports.

Durant's impending absence comes as little surprise given his placement on the NFI list. Fellow reserves Darnell Leslie and John Lotulelei should take on added snaps in his stead.

Cowboys' Justin Durant: Lands on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Durant (undisclosed) was placed on the NFI list on Saturday, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

It isn't clear as to what sort of injury Durant is dealing with. Since he was re-signed just two days ago, it may have been a pre-existing condition. His return date isn't certain.

Cowboys' Justin Durant: Signed by Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Durant was signed by the Cowboys on Thursday, David Helman of reports.

Durant, a 31-year-old journeyman, appeared in 13 games with the Cowboys last year as he notched 37 tackles, one sack and three passes defensed. The veteran linebacker will likely fill a similar depth role once again in 2017, while the team was forced to release cornerback Jeremiah McKinnon as a result of Durant's addition to the defensive unit. Durant is capable of playing all three spots at linebacker, which may be necessary throughout the preseason with MLBs Jaylon Smith and Mark Nzeocha still recovering from knee injuries.
