An MRI on Friday revealed that Neal suffered enough damage to the knee to require a scope. Doctors will determine the damage during Neal's scope, which is scheduled for Monday. Neal's knee ligaments are fine and that the procedure likely will be a meniscus trim/cartilage cleanup, a source informed of the injury told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
For his part, Neal didn't seem too concerned about the injury, tweeting Friday, "Relax.. What's a problem isn't a problem."
The No. 17 overall pick was hurt after absorbing a second-quarter stiff-arm from veteran running back Arian Foster. Neal had to be helped off the field, but walked to the locker room under his own power.
To temporarily fill the need at safety, Atlanta is working out free agent safety Dashon Goldson on Saturday, Rapoport added, per a source.
