The Bears traded Hall (suspension) to the Eagles for a conditional seventh-round pick on Saturday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Hall only suited up two games for the Bears in 2017 and didn't make a tackle. He'll serve as a depth option in Philly and will be far from an IDP asset. The third-year pro will also sit out Week 1 against the Falcons for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Hall received six months' probation Feb. 6 after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct and public intoxication charges related to a March 2017 incident in Cedar Falls, Iowa, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Though Hall's legal situation is now resolved, it remains to be seen if he'll be subject to further discipline from the Bears or the NFL. Hall, a 2016 fourth-round pick, appeared in two games last season after being activated from injured reserve in early December, following an extended absence due to a hamstring issue.
Hall played one defensive snap during the 2017 season. Hall was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury before the regular season began and was activated in Week 13, but he only played two snaps on the season as the third-string free safety. He's signed through 2019 and he'll likely continue to serve as a backup, significantly limiting his IDP value.
The Bears activated Hall (hamstring) from injured reserve Saturday, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports. The Bears are dealing with a plethora of injuries at safety, so Hall could be in line for a relatively healthy workload right away. Either he or Chris Prosinsky, who is also making his season debut, is expected to get the start at strong safety in Week 13.
Hall (hamstring) will practice Wednesday after the Bears designated him to return from injured reserve. The Bears will thus have a 21-day window to evaluate Hall's health in practices before adding him to the 53-man roster or leaving him on injured reserve for the rest of the season. Given that the second-year cornerback has been sidelined since the preseason finale, Hall will likely need more than a week of practice time to regain conditioning, so it seems rather unlikely that he'll be activated in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Eagles.
