Falcons Safety Keanu Neal Exits Loss vs. Colts With Achilles Injury

Falcons safety Keanu Neal, coming off torn ACL in 2018, suffered an Achilles injury vs. the Colts.

Falcons safety Keanu Neal left Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Colts on Sunday after suffering an Achilles injury, and he didn't return. 

Neal was injured in the second quarter on a non-contact play and drew a flag on the play for throwing down his helmet in frustration. Atlanta was assessed a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Neal had four tackles before leaving with the injury.

The 24-year-old Neal is coming off an injury-plagued 2018 season in which he tore his ACL in the season opener against the Eagles.

The Falcons next face the Titans on Sept. 29.
