Neal had to be helped off the field with a right knee injury in the second quarter of Thursday night's preseason action, but walked to the locker room under his own power. Neal did not return to the 17-6 loss to the Dolphins.
The Falcons had high hopes for the rookie safety this upcoming season, and losing him for any period of time would be a blow to their secondary.
Here are the other injuries we are keeping track of Thursday night:
- Miami also had a big-name defender leave the contest early. Defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh suffered an ankle injury and did not come back in the game.
