Hall (knee) has expressed desire to return to Washington next season, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the team's official site reports. Hall said of the situation, "I would love to return to [play next year]. I think there's still a lot of plays out there I can make...We'll see, but I'm definitely trying to get back out there and play. I feel I can help us win games, I feel like I can make plays. We'll see though." The veteran safety tore his ACL during Week 3's win over the Giants and hasn't played a full season the past three years with Washington. It has been reported that the 33-year-old is ahead of schedule in the rehabbing process, but still has a ways to go to return to full health. Hall also noted he is open to restructuring the final year of his contract in order to give the team more cap space. Look for more updates on his situation to come throughout the offseason.
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.
