The Dallas Cowboys have rattled off three straight wins despite a growing injury report. Fortunately, the team received some great news on Keanu Neal's latest update and his potential return from the COVID-19 list.

Neal, the former safety turned linebacker, was brought in this offseason as a needed boost to Dallas' defensive front. However, after starting in Weeks 1 and 2, the former Falcon missed the past two weeks with COVID.

Neal finally returned to practice on Wednesday. He was a limited participant because of the missed time, but could be brought up to speed before Sunday.

Keanu Neal Update

Thanks to the slew of injuries and absences, the Cowboys' defense has struggled in 2021. Dallas is giving up 396.3 yards per game, the seventh most in the NFL.

Neal is a great additional depth option for Dallas. The one-time Pro Bowler started one of his two games of action this season and racked up 9 tackles including 1 tackle for loss in 38% of the snaps.

The Cowboys square off against the New York Giants on Sunday, entering the matchup as 7-point home favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
