  • Steelers' Keanu Neal: Five tackles in team debut

    Neal recorded five tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 30-7 loss to the 49ers.

    Neal signed with the Steelers in the offseason and he had productive debut with the team considering he only played 48 percent of the defensive snaps. His workload will likely increase as the season goes on, therefore his production will go up as well.

  • Steelers' Keanu Neal: Finding role with Pittsburgh

    Neal is expected to be a significant and versatile piece of the Steelers defense this season, Joe Rutter of reports.

    Neal signed a two-year deal with Pittsburgh in March after spending last season on the Buccaneers. The veteran safety has spent time all over the field on defense in practice, seeing snaps at strong safety, while also as a third safety playing more in the box. His physical presence and versatility should lead to a significant role in Steelers' secondary this season.

  • Steelers' Keanu Neal: Officially signs with Steelers

    The Steelers signed Neal (hip) to a two-year contract Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    As expected, Neal will join Pittsburgh in 2023 where he'll pursue his eighth year of professional ball. Across the last two seasons as a member of both the Cowboys and Buccaneers, the 2017 Pro-Bowler has more or less switched off between being a starter as well as a rotational secondary piece. Neal is now in line to compete with Damontae Kazee throughout the offseason for an opportunity to start next to fellow safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.

  • Keanu Neal: Likely moving to Pittsburgh

    Neal (hip) is expected to sign with the Steelers, Chris Halicke of reports.

    Neal, a 2016 first-round pick and Pro-Bowler, appears as if he'll pursue his eighth campaign in the NFL as a member of the Steelers. The 27-year-old spent the first five years of his career in Atlanta before suiting up for the Cowboys in 2021 and eventually for the Buccaneers in 2022. Across 17 appearances last season, Neal amassed 63 tackles, four passes defensed and one interception.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Won't play against Dallas

    Neal (hip) has been ruled inactive prior to Monday's wild-card game against the Cowboys.

    Neal sustained a hip injury during the regular-season finale against Atlanta. While he was able to practice in full during each session heading into the playoffs, the 27-year-old won't be able to suit up for this home postseason contest. As a result, Logan Ryan will serve as the Buccaneers' only available safety behind starters Antoine Winfield and Mike Edwards.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Questionable to play vs. Dallas

    Neal (hip) is listed as questionable for Monday's game versus the Cowboys.

    Neal was a full participant at practice Thursday, Friday and Saturday, so it would be surprising if he was absent from the wild-card round. If active, he'll probably rotate in at safety behind Antoine Winfield and Mike Edwards on Monday.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Full participant Thursday

    Neal (hip) was a full participant during practice Thursday.

    Neal exited with a hip injury during the regular-season finale against Atlanta. It's unclear if the 27-year-old ever returned to this contest, though it doesn't appear this issue will limit him heading into the start of the playoffs. Neal has served a rotational role at safety for the Buccaneers this season, and he'll likely reprise this spot behind Antoine Winfield and Mike Edwards during Monday's wild-card matchup against the Cowboys.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Exits with injury Sunday

    Neal (hip) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    Neal picked up a hip injury at some point during Sunday's regular-season finale, though the nature and severity of this issue are unclear. With Mike Edwards (hamstring) and Logan Ryan (knee) both already inactive, it's unclear who will step in alongside starting strong safety Antoine Winfield for the time being.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Good to go for Week 16

    Neal (toe) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Cardinals, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Neal was considered questionable due to a toe injury that sidelined him for most of Week 16 prep, but the veteran defensive back will ultimately be active. Antoine Winfield (ankle) and Mike Edwards (hamstring) are also available after being listed as questionable, so Tampa Bay's secondary will be close to full strength.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Questionable with toe injury

    Neal is questionable for Sunday's matchup against Arizona due to a toe injury.

    Neal didn't practice Wednesday due to the toe injury but logged limited sessions Thursday and Friday. Antoine Winfield (ankle) and Mike Edwards (hamstring) are also questionable, so it's currently unclear who'll start at safety for Tampa Bay on Sunday.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Solid performance in Week 14

    Neal totaled six tackles (three solo), including one for loss, during the Buccaneers' 35-7 loss to the 49ers in Week 14.

    Neal finished third on the team in tackles while once again drawing a start in Mike Edwards' (hamstring) second straight absence. Neal has logged between 55 and 74 snaps in five of his last six contests, totaling between five and 10 tackles. Neal would be set for yet another run with the first unit if Edwards remains out for Sunday's interconference home showdown against the Bengals.

  • Buccaneers' Keanu Neal: Huge pass breakup in win

    Neal recorded five solo tackles and a pass defended in Monday's 17-16 win against the Saints.

    Neal once again stepped up for injured starting safety Antoine Winfield (concussion). While he only finished with a pedestrian five tackles, the 27-year-old flew in to break up a would-be third-down conversion on a pass to Taysom Hill. The Saints' ensuing punt allowed just enough time for quarterback Tom Brady to lead Tampa Bay's offense on a 63-yard game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter. Neal has now logged 51 tackles, a half-sack and two passes defended over his first 12 games with the Buccaneers. He could stand to see prominent usage again if Winfield remains out against San Francisco in Week 14.
