Hall's (knee) MRI revealed a torn ACL, effectively ruling him out for the remainder of this season, Erin Hawksworth of ABC 7 News reports. Hall went down just before halftime of Sunday's win over the Giants. Unfortunately, it's not the first time the 32-year-old has seen his season cut short due to injury, especially lately, as Hall has now played just 17 games over the past three seasons. With him unavailable going forward, Will Blackmon could be promoted to the Redskins' starting free safety position.
Hall is penciled in as Washington's starting free safety at this point in the offseason, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. With only scraps remaining on the free-agent market and the NFL Draft less than a month in the future, Hall will remain in the back of Washington's secondary. After putting together four consecutive complete campaigns from 2010 through 2013, an array of injuries have limited him to 14 appearances the past two seasons, during which he totaled 64 tackles (51 solo), two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and one defensive touchdown. The production is a far cry from the peak of his career, especially with no picks on the ledger during that stretch, but the 32-year-old currently has no competition at strong safety.
Hall (calf) is active Sunday against the Cowboys. After missing practice on Wednesday, Hall put in limited sessions on Thursday and Friday and will see time in the lineup at strong safety. With Washington having nothing to play for, it's difficult to know how many snaps he'll end up seeing. Over his last three games, he's recovered a fumble while piling up 19 tackles.
Hall injured his calf in Saturday's win over the Eagles, the Washington Post's Master Tesfatsion reports. Regardless of his ability to play, Hall may be held out of Sunday's meaningless game against the Cowboys. And even if he ends up playing, it would be quite surprising if he stayed in for the entire game.
Hall (toe) is active Sunday at Carolina. Hall logged just 18 snaps on defense Week 10 against the Saints, but his presence will provide added depth to the Washington secondary. Per Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Washington, Hall could see some snaps at safety, which makes sense considering starting strong safety Trenton Robinson is inactive.
