Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall is done for the season. The cornerback suffered a painful leg injury on Sunday and an MRI today confirmed that he has torn his ACL, Erin Hawksworth of ABC 7 tweets. Now, Hall must wait until the swelling goes down before Dr. James Andrews can operate on him.
Hall, 32, hurt his knee in the second quarter of Washington’s 29-27 victory over the Giants. He paced the sidelines hoping to get back in the game, but he was ruled out for the rest of the contest.
The veteran was a cornerback for his entire career up until this offseason when the Redskins asked him to transition over to safety. Now, the Redskins are down a starter and they’ll likely bump Will Blackmon or Duke Ihenacho to the starting spot opposite David Bruton Jr. We can also expect the Redskins to look outside for help.
