Today brings the final practice for the Falcons here in Flowery Branch before Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Redskins. Keanu Neal did not practice Monday with what’s being called a trunk injury, it’s not clear if he will play Thursday, Hugh said “It’s still early, and we can wait to see him play. I don’t know what a trunk injury is, but let him get healthy because we need him for the season.” Levine Toilolo and Terron Ward are also out with injuries.
