Draft Scout Mike Neal News
01/06/14 - DE/OLB Mike Neal sustained an injury to his right knee in San Francisco's first series Sunday and didn't return to the wild-card playoff game, won 23-20 by the 49ers. Before undergoing an MRI exam later in the day Monday, Neal said he was told by the team's medical staff that he didn't incur a torn ACL in the knee. "I don't think it's anything real bad," Neal said. "It's just sore, stiff (with) no swelling. So, hopefully, it's just an MCL or something like that, one of those things that will heal on its own and I'll be good."
