  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Ruled out against 49ers

    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.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Looking like GTD

    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 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.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: DNP on Thursday

    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.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Limited practice Wednesday

    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.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Questionable to return

    Neal (arm) is questionable to return Saturday against the Eagles, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

    Neal was playing with his left arm heavily wrapped, but he has exited the game and went to the locker room. The Cowboys' linebacker depth was thin going into the game and will be even thinner if Neal cannot return. Leighton Vander Esch and Luke Gifford are the only healthy linebackers left in the game for the Cowboys.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Activated off reserve/COVID-19 list

    Neal was activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    The linebacker was inactive in Week 17 after testing positive for COVID-19 on Dec. 31, but he returned to the team Wednesday ahead of their regular season finale against the Eagles on Saturday. Neal's return could prove crucial for the Cowboys in Week 18, as fellow linebackers, Micah Parsons (illness) and Francis Bernard (illness) have been placed on the COVID list.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Tests positive for COVID-19

    The Cowboys placed Neal (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Neal's placement on the COVID-19 list is the result of a positive test, marking the second time that he's tested positive for the virus this season. He's unvaccinated and therefore ineligible to play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals, as he must first complete a mandatory five-day quarantine before he can be activated (if asymptomatic). Luke Gifford could see an uptick in playing time in Neal's stead.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Seven tackles in win

    Neal totaled seven tackles (four solo) in Sunday's 21-6 win over the Giants.

    After relatively limited production early in the season, Neal has been an effective tackler for the Cowboys recently and tied for the team lead in the category Sunday. He now has at least five tackles in six of the last seven games and has recorded 45 tackles (25 solo) and a sack during that time.

  • Cowboys' Keanu Neal: Season-high stops

    Neal had seven tackles (five solo) during Sunday's 19-9 loss to the Chiefs.

    Neal played 100 percent of defensive snaps for the first time all season versus Kansas City, so it's unsurprising that he also managed his highest tackle total of the year. Now that he's evidently back to handling an every-down workload, Neal could be in the mix for fantasy consideration against the Raiders on Thanksgiving Day.
