On a relatively quiet day of training camp, the big news is that Keanu Neal is hurt. Let’s dive right into that and discuss what’s going on before we touch on anything else.
Falcons' first-rounder Keanu Neal sidelined by trunk injury https://t.co/7ruiW2D9cQ— ESPN NFL Nation (@ESPN_NFLNation) August 8, 2016
Neal has a "trunk" injury, Toilolo has a hand injury that needs a second opinion, Ward has an ankle injury. #FalconsCamp— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) August 8, 2016
Neal, Toilolo, and Ward are all 50/50 to play Thursday. Neal, in particular, seems to just have a strain that will benefit from a little rest, so as much as the team would like to get him into game action. We’re not sure what’s going on with Toilolo and Ward, but we’ll hope both miss this coming game, at most.
Otherwise, it was a nice day for the defense (minus Matt Ryan scrambling away, of course). Vic Beasley looked good, per multiple observers, and C.J. Goodwin just keeps pushing for roster spot consideration.
Another INT for CJ Goodwin. Matt Simms pass. Receiver might have slipped— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) August 8, 2016
We’ll be back with more tomorrow!
