Mike Neal

Neal should be back in a few days.

It looks like we won’t be labeling Green Bay Packers second-year defensive end [intlink id=”1033″ type=”category”]Mike Neal[/intlink] the new [intlink id=”100″ type=”category”]Justin Harrell[/intlink] just yet.

Neal, who sprained his knee in practice Tuesday, won’t miss an extended period of time.

He was listed as day-to-day by coach Mike McCarthy and still has a chance to play in Friday’s preseason game against Arizona. Neal tweeted that he was “A OK,” yesterday.

After spending most of last season on injured reserve, the Packers put a lot of faith in Neal by inserting him into the starting lineup without any competition.
