  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Gets back on track in 2023

    Dupree finished 2023 with 39 tackles (17 solo), 6.5 sacks, three pass defenses and two forced fumbles in 16 appearances.

    After back-to-back down years in Tennessee, Dupree signed a one-year, prove-it deal with the Falcons last offseason. The 2015 first-round pick did just that, playing in his most games since 2019 while recording his most sacks and forced fumbles since 2020 -- his final year with Pittsburgh. The veteran pass rusher will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but it wouldn't be surprising if there's mutual interest in a return given the bounce-back campaign Dupree had in 2023.

  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Active Sunday

    Dupree (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

    The starting linebacker was questionable heading into the day with the same back injury that forced him to miss the Falcons' Week 15 loss to the Panthers. Dupree has 31 tackles, including 5.0 sacks, two passes defensed and a forced fumble in 2023.

  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Uncertain for Week 16

    Dupree (back) is considered questionable to play in Sunday's matchup with Indianapolis, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Dupree has been dealing with a back injury over the last week, which forced him to miss the team's 9-7 loss to the Panthers in Week 15. If the linebacker is sidelined again Sunday, Lorenzo Carter will see an increased workload versus the Colts.

  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Won't suit up Week 15

    Dupree (back) is inactive for Sunday's contest versus Carolina.

    Dupree wasn't on Atlanta's injury report heading into the weekend, but he'll nonetheless miss Sunday's clash with the Panthers. He's been a key part of the Falcons' pass rush this season, logging at least 57 percent of the team's defensive snaps each week and accumulating 5.0 sacks, second-most on the team. Lorenzo Carter could see more work with Dupree out.

  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Busy day in win

    Dupree registered seven tackles (three solo), including two sacks, during Sunday's 13-8 win over the Jets.

    Dupree recorded a season-high seven tackles, tying Jessie Bates for the team high. Dupree also recorded multiple sacks in the same game for the first time this year, giving him five QB takedowns through 12 games. He's finished a season with more than five sacks four times in his career, but not since 2020, which was his final campaign in Pittsburgh.

  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Active Sunday

    Dupree (groin) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Titans, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Dupree landed on the injury report Friday with a groin injury and was a limited participant during Atlanta's final practice of Week 8 prep. However, the veteran will still suit up and figures to play a prominent role on defense. Across seven games, Dupree has totaled 17 tackles, two sacks and two pass defenses while playing at least 65 percent of the team's defensive snaps in each contest.

  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Questionable for Sunday at Titans

    Dupree (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Titans, Amna Subhan of the Falcons' official site reports.

    Dupree was limited at practice Friday due to a groin injury that he presumably sustained during the week. If he sits out in Week 8, Lorenzo Carter would probably see an uptick in pass-rushing opportunities.

  • Falcons' Bud Dupree: Makes impact in Week 6

    Dupree recorded four tackles (one solo), including 1.5 sacks, during Sunday's 24-16 loss to the Commanders.

    Dupree continues to enjoy a solid role in Atlanta's defense, playing around 75 percent of the team's defensive snaps over the past four weeks. During that stretch, the veteran pass rusher has recorded 12 tackles, including two sacks, and two pass defenses. Dupree is likely a hit-or-miss option, but he can certainly rack up IDP points quickly when he's getting after the quarterback like he was Sunday.
