Neal (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.
Toilolo (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.
Ward (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.
Collins 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.
Jackson was a frequent and productive target of Jameis Winston in Thursday's joint practice with the Jags, of the team's official site reports.
The veteran had his day in the sun during Thursday's session, making plays up and down the practice field. Jackson hauled in a pair of deep passes from Winston during the session and was also targeted frequently during team and seven-on-seven drills. Although he hasn't necessarily drawn any headlines during camp so far, Jackson's veteran savvy and steady presence remains an integral component of the Bucs' wide receiver corps, and offense as a whole, heading into the 2016 campaign.
Sims (ankle) gained 20 yards on five carries in Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars.
Fully recovered from a minor ankle injury, Sims got the start in place of Doug Martin (bruised ribs), who is also a bit banged up. The result was an unusual stat line, with Sims getting five carries and zero targets. No matter, the two running backs figure to reprise their roles from last season, with Martin getting most of the carries and Sims handling passing downs.
