Neal exited the game multiple times and did not return to the field after he walked off with trainers in the third quarter. He appeared to suffer a non-contact injury in the second quarter.

The Falcons will now look to second-year defender Damontae Kazee to replace the Pro Bowl safety. Kazee had three tackles and a pass defensed in Thursday's loss.
