    08/11/16DBKeanu NealTorsoPROBABLENeal (torso) will practice "in some fashion" Sunday according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    The rookie safety out of Florida suffered a slight strain in his torso during practice earlier this week, and the Falcons are taking their time bringing him back. Neal was the 17th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and will be the favorite to start at strong safety for the Falcons this season given that his torso injury is nothing serious.

    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) came out late, but managed to participate in some of Tuesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

    Ward has missed just over a week since injuring his ankle, but he appears to be nearing a return. His limited participation is a good sign, and he did say that it was getting better day-by-day. When he returns, he'll look to continue to push Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman for reps and carries in both the preseason and regular season.

    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.

    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.

    08/06/16TEEric EbronAchillesQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Ebron was once again seen on the sidelines, just one day after he returned to practice for the first time since early August. The tight end went through a light practice on Tuesday, but the coaching staff evidently decided to give him another day off as they continue to ease him back into the shuffle of things. His status for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens is still unknown, although if he does play, it seems like it will be in a very limited capacity.
