Bad news for an Atlanta Falcons team already short Brian Poole: Keanu Neal just took out Desmond Trufant. Neal was responsible for a helmet to helmet hit while Trufant was making a tackle, and it was clear quickly that Trufant was banged up.
Desmond Trufant is being evaluated for a possible head injury, return is questionable. #Falcons— Kelsey Conway (@FalconsKelsey) November 26, 2017
Trufant just headed to the locker room with a trainer, which is a very bad sign for his ability to play the rest of the game. We will update when his status changes, but this is probably the end of Trufant’s day.
Update: we knew this was coming. Unlikely we see Trufant next week, short of a very, very fast recovery.
