    08/11/16DBKeanu NealTorsoPROBABLENeal (torso) injured his knee in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Neal is dealing with his second injury of the preseason. First it was a torso strain that kept him out of the team's first preseason game and now his knee injury. Despite being dinged up a bit, the rookie did tell teammates that he didn't think the injury was serious and he expects to play in the teams Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.

    08/11/16TELevine ToiloloHandPROBABLEToilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.

    08/11/16RBTerron WardAnkleQUESTIONABLEWard (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins.

    Ward hasn't played so far this preseason and it's unclear if he'll be able to return for the team's final go before the regular season, next Thursday against the Jaguars. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 option at running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but his lengthy absence will again open the door Gus Johnson to take a shot at that role with added game snaps on Thursday.

    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.

    Detroit Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/16/16LBDeAndre LevyUndisclosedQUESTIONABLELevy (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday morning, ESPN.com reports.

    While technically now available to practice, Levy won't necessarily do so Tuesday. He did suggest that he hopes to play in at least one preseason game, but the real goal will be to have him ready for Week 1. Even after missing all of last season with a hip injury and the first three weeks of training camp with an undisclosed issue, Levy possesses an IDP ceiling that's among the best in the league. Few linebackers possess a similar combination of run-stopping and coverage skills.

    08/15/16LBJon BosticFootDOUBTFULBostic could miss significant time with an undisclosed injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    It is unclear what is wrong with the fourth year Florida product, but it appears his injury is relatively serious. Expect an update on his status when more information becomes available.

    (Updated 08/10/2016)
    08/06/16TEEric EbronAchillesQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) missed his second consecutive practice Thursday, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    It's unclear whether Ebron suffered a setback in his recovery as HC Jim Caldwell was noncommittal in answering specific questions about Ebron's current health situation. However, at this point, the tight end is expected to miss the Lions' third preseason game Saturday against the Ravens, but there is still optimism he'll be back in time for Week 1. Until he returns, Cole Wick should continue to see first-team reps as the Lions' primary receiving tight end.
