Neal injured early in practice

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on August 16, 2011 – 12:13 pm

Defensive end Mike Neal sustained a left leg injury early in Tuesday’s practice at Ray Nitschke Field. Neal was participating in a defensive line drill involving a blocking bag when he fell to the ground clutching his left knee. He remained on the ground for a few minutes, before returning to his feet. He left the field without assistance, though with a limp.

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy and Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers came to Neal to observe the medical team’s examination of him. The specifics of Neal’s injury won’t likely be known until McCarthy offers details in his post-practice press conference.

Neal is a 2010 second-round draft pick who missed most of last season with a shoulder injury. He is considered to be an important player in Capers’ defensive plans and is thought to be the logical replacement for Cullen Jenkins, who left the Packers in free agency.

Packers.com will update this story following McCarthy’s press conference, or when more information is available.
