The safety of the Atlanta Falcons Keanu Neal suffered a devastating injury during his game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, and while he was writhing in pain, he was slapped with a penalty for removing his helmet.
Neal suffered an Achilles injury to the Colts in the second half. He was seen removing his helmet in pain and was reported for unsporting behavior due to the removal of the helmet. The Colts accepted the punishment.
