DeAngelo Hall Out With ACL Tear?

DeAngelo Hall made an interesting proclamation after the Redskins’ 29-27 win over the Giants on Sunday, telling ESPN.com’s Josina Anderson (Twitter link) doctors told him he tore his ACL.

We think you tore your ACL,” Hall said (via Master Tefatsion of the Washington Post) Redskins doctors, including Dr. James Andrews, told him after the injury. “It kind of feels like you did.”

The recent safety convert will undergo an MRI on Monday, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). Schefter categorized Hall’s ailment as a knee injury for now but was more concrete on secondary mate Bashaud Breeland, whom the longtime reporter said has a right high-ankle sprain.

Hall suffered what was at the time called a sprained right knee during the second quarter and was walking around on the sidelines before being told he could not return to the game. Anderson added the 32-year-old safety seemed to be walking fine after the game, so it’s possible his season is not yet over.

The former cornerback and 13th-year veteran missed 13 games in 2014 with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon and five last season due to a lesser malady. He spent his first full offseason as a safety in 2016. A starter in all three Washington games this season, Hall being out would leave the team with Will Blackmon and Duke Ihenacho at safety. The Redskins already lost 2015 part-time starter Kyshoen Jarrett to a nerve-related injury that induced them to cut the second-year player.
