The toughest opponent the Cowboys have faced so far in 2021 seems to be the Reserve/COVID list. The team has placed another player on the watchlist, leaving his status for Monday night’s home opener against the Eagles in serious doubt.

Linebacker Keanu Neal is entering the protocol, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. That news comes the same day that defensive end Randy Gregory rejoins the team after missing Week 2’s game in Los Angeles.

Gregory is expected to play Monday night. Neal’s availability is not yet known.

The veteran in his sixth pro season (but his first in Dallas) has logged six solo tackles over the team’s first two games. A former safety under Dan Quinn in Atlanta, Neal made the switch to linebacker this offseason upon reuniting with Quinn in Dallas.

Neal played nearly 77% of the team’s defensive snaps against Tampa in Week 1. Against the Chargers, he was on the field for almost 72%.
