The Falcons believe S Keanu Neal tore his left Achilles' tendon in Sunday's loss to the Colts. Kemal Ishmael filled in for Neal on Sunday and finished with 6 tackles. He'll be worth a look in plenty of IDP leagues this week.
Falcons HC Dan Quinn told the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Tuesday that he expects to have S Keanu Neal return to the field Thursday for the team's 1st full practice of the week. Neal has been out since an August knee scope to fix a preseason injury. We'll see whether he's ready to play Monday night. IDP owners shouldn't plan to use the rookie this week, especially given the Monday night kickoff. But Neal's return will also boot Kemal Ishmael -- who delivered 15 total tackles at Oakland in Week 2 -- back to a reserve role.
