Falcons safety Keanu Neal suffered a knee injury during Thursday night's game against the Eagles, and is now out for the season.

Atlanta Falcons safety Keanu Neal will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury, the team announced Friday.

Neal suffered a knee injury in the Falcons' 18-12 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night. He was injured in the first half on a non-contact play. Neal left the field with medical staff but returned to the game. 

The 23-year-old exited the game again in the third quarter, and the Falcons announced that he would be out for the remainder of the contest. 

After the Falcons announced Neal's season-ending injury Friday, the safety shared his thoughts on Twitter.
