FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons (1-0) are set to play the Cleveland Browns (0-1) in their second exhibition game at 8 p.m. on Thursday at First Energy Stadium.

Here are five things to know about the Atlanta Falcons on Monday.

1. Practice schedule.  The Falcons are set to practice from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The practice is open to the public.

2. Injury report. Falcons safety Keanu Neal, who was out with a trunk/torso injury, returned to practice on Sunday. Falcons coach Dan Quinn gave a full injury report after practice. “(Kemal Ishmael) has a shoulder strain and he’ll likely be down this week along with (running back Terron) Ward,” Falcons coach Dan Quinn said after practice on Sunday. “He’s making progress. It was good to have back out there for today, (tight end Levine) Toilolo and Neal. We are hopeful that both of those will move forward this week. We held out Matt Bryant today. He had some tightness. That’s day-to-day. (Tight end) D.J. Tialavea, we had him back in a rehab run so we are hopeful to have him back for the game.” Neal, the 17th player taken in the NFL draft, did not play in the exhibition opener against Washington on Thursday. He’s slated to make his debut at Cleveland at 8 p.m. Thursday night.

3. Falcons sign Ryan White. Former Auburn cornerback Ryan White was signed on Sunday. White, 5-foot-10 and 197 pounds, was added to replace David Mims II, who was waived injured on Saturday. The Falcons roster is now back up to the 90-player limit. White, who played both cornerback and safety for the Tigers, was originally signed by the Green Bay Packers after the 2014 draft.

4. Military Appreciation Day.  Steve Cannon, chief executive officer of the Falcons’ parent company the AMB Group, said the team and the Army will partner on several programs and initiatives.

5. Haden out for Falcons. Browns cornerback Joe Haden will not play in the exhibition game. Browns coach Hue Jackson, who was Bobby Petrino’s offensive coordinator with the Falcons in 2007, declared him out Sunday.
