The Atlanta Falcons have lost their first round pick for a few weeks. Last night, the former Florida Gator Keanu Neal was injured trying to make a play on a ball carrier.
Neal told his teammates he would be fine, but according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Neal will require a minor knee surgery.
“Keanu Neal suffered a minor knee injury in the first quarter of last night’s game. Following an MRI this morning, it was determined he will need to have a minor procedure done, which will cause him to be out three to four weeks. He will have the scope done on Monday and we expect a full recovery.”
