Redskins CB Hall likely out 3-4 weeks


The Sports Xchange

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall could be sidelined for three to four weeks, perhaps longer, after suffering a Grade 2 partial ligament tear in his toe during Thursday night’s loss to the New York Giants, head coach Jay Gruden announced Friday.

The recovery time remains uncertain because it has not yet been determined whether Hall will need surgery.

This is the second year in a row that Hall, 31, is likely to miss extended playing time because of an injury.

He started the first three games last year before an Achilles injury ended his season. Hall started the first three games this year before the toe injury occurred.

Bashaud Breeland and Will Blackmon are expected to get the most playing time in Hall’s absence.

The Redskins also announced that they signed inside linebacker Nico Johnson to their practice squad, and waived fullback Jordan Campbell from their Injured Reserve list.
