  • Neal agreed to a contract Wednesday with the Buccaneers, who plan to use him at safety, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 2016 first-round pick mostly played linebacker for Dallas last year, after a six-season run in Atlanta as a hard-hitting strong safety. A return to the secondary represents his best shot at IDP relevance, considering Neal had three 100-tackle season as a safety and managed a modest 72 in 14 games for Dallas last year. That said, the Bucs already have Antoine Winfield and Logan Ryan, potentially leaving Neal to come off the bench, in which case IDP value would require an injury in front of him. Neal likely has made a full recovery from the chest injury that held him out of the Cowboys' playoff loss to San Francisco in January.

  • Neal (chest) has been ruled out for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the 49ers, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Neal was expected to be a game-time decision for the postseason opener as he deals with various injuries, but he was officially ruled out Friday. In his absence, Luke Gifford and Francis Bernard are candidates to see increased work against San Francisco.

  • Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that the status of Neal (chest) will "come down to the wire" for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Neal is dealing with a biceps strain, per McCarthy, though he was also listed with chest and elbow injuries earlier in the week. He was limited Wednesday, then missed practice entirely Thursday. Luke Gifford and Francis Bernard would be candidates for increased work if Neal can't go, but a final word on the status of Dallas' linebacker corps may not be disclosed until just before Sunday's wild-card matchup kicks off.

  • Neal (chest/elbow) did not participate at Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. The linebacker was a limited participant for Wednesday's non-padded work, but he was unavailable for Thursday's regular practice. With the step back in participation, Neal's ability to play Sunday against the 49ers comes into greater question. His status at the Cowboys' practice Friday is worth monitoring and if he can't go for this weekend's wild-card matchup, Luke Gifford and Francis Bernard could be asked to play larger roles at linebacker.

  • Neal (chest/elbow) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Neal left the Cowboys' Week 18 win over the Eagles early with an arm injury, which is now understood to be both an elbow and chest injury. The linebacker's ability to practice in any capacity Wednesday bodes well for his chances to suit up for Sunday's wild-card contest versus the 49ers, though his status is worth monitoring in the coming days.
