Neal had surgery to repair a torn ACL in September but is expected to be ready for training camp

Summary

Reports have been encouraging this offseason that Keanu Neal, who tore his ACL in September of last year, is on track to return for Week 1. Neal's absence in 2018 forced Atlanta's defense to change how it operates, weakening its scheme diversity and removing a physical presence over the middle. Neal should slide right back into his strong safety role and could reach the heights of his 2017 season when he totalled 83 solo tackles. He is a strong DB1 in all formats. (May 12)

Falcons | Two safeties making good progress (Sat May 11, 02:55 PM) - Atlanta Falcons SS Keanu Neal (knee) and FS Ricardo Allen (Achilles) are making good progress in their rehabs and hopefully will be full participants at the start of training camp, according to head coach Dan Quinn.

Our View: The Falcons will have a new starting corner outside in Isaiah Oliver, but will enjoy more continuity than last year if Neal and Allen can stay healthy. "Hopefully" isn't the most reassuring word, so we'll continue to monitor their progress.
