Raiders' Leon Hall: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Hall suffered a back injury during Oakland's Week 11 win over the Cardinals, the severity of which will ultimately require him to spend the rest of the season on injured reserve. The 33-year-old had been a key piece of the Raiders' defense all season, and his absence should bring an uptick in snaps for Rashaan Melvin and Nick Nelson in nickel and dime packages.

Raiders' Leon Hall: Not playing this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Hall's absence doesn't come with much surprise after he failed to practice in any capacity this week. With the veteran out for the first time this season, fellow cornerbacks Rashaan Melvin and Nick Nelson could pick up a few additional snaps in nickel and dime packages.

Raiders' Leon Hall: Questionable for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Ravens, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com reports.

Hall sustained the injury in the second half of last week's game against the Cardinals. The Michigan product was unable to log a practice in any capacity this week. If Hall is forced to miss time on the field Sunday, Gareon Conley (heel) and Nick Nelson could see increased work in the secondary.

Raiders' Leon Hall: Sits out practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

Hall played only four defensive snaps Sunday against the Cardinals, as he exited with the back injury. Gareon Conley and Nick Nelson split snaps behind top cornerback Daryl Worley in Sunday's game, which could continue if Hall is forced to miss some time.

Raiders' Leon Hall: Questionable to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to a back injury.

Hall exited Sunday's tilt against Arizona during the second quarter with a back injury. If the veteran cornerback is unable to retake the field, Rashaan Melvin will serve as the primary backup to starter Daryl Worley.

Raiders' Leon Hall: Signs with Oakland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall signed a contract with the Raiders on Thursday, Vic Tafur of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Hall has played for the Giants and the 49ers the past two years after spending the first nine years of his career with Cincinnati. The 33-year-old cornerback recorded 15 tackles and one pass defensed while playing in nine games in 2017. He'll likely be a depth corner while with Oakland in 2018.

49ers' Leon Hall: Re-signs with San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall signed a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The 49ers parted ways with Hall less than a week earlier before he could make his team debut, but seeing the field in San Francisco's Week 8 matchup with the Eagles may be a more realistic possibility. Reserve cornerback K'Waun Williams suffered a quadriceps injury in last Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and is considered unlikely to play in Week 8, perhaps paving the way for Hall to be active on game day.

Leon Hall: Let go by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall was released Thursday by the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Hall signed with the 49ers just over a week ago, which makes his sudden release fairly surprising. The veteran cornerback did not see the field during his very short stint in San Francisco and will be on the free agent market once again.

49ers' Leon Hall: Signs with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall signed a contract with the 49ers on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com reports.

The 32-year-old veteran played 12 games with the Giants last season, recording 31 tackles, two sacks and one interception in the process. He failed to sign on with any team this offseason, but could now become an immediate contributor on defense given the plethora of injures in San Francisco's secondary. Even if he doesn't see the field at first, Hall's veteran presence will help guide the 49ers' young cornerbacks.

Giants' Leon Hall: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (coach's decision) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

Hall's absence comes as a bit of a surprise given his usage as the slot corner throughout the season, along with his veteran experience. The Giants' defensive scheme in Week 9 figures to deploy Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple on the outside with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie covering the slot, Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News reports.

Giants' Leon Hall: Returns to practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (concussion) returned to practice Monday, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reports.

Hall suffered a concussion during the Giants' third preseason bout. His return to practice bodes well for his health, but his Week 1 status remains up in the air.

Giants' Leon Hall: Suffers concussion Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall suffered a concussion during Saturday's preseason contest against the Jets, Art Stapleton of The Record reports.

The Giants inked Hall to a contract in early August to bolster their depth at cornerback, but he's worked as a free safety in recent practices due to injuries befalling each player at the position. With his diagnosis known, there's no telling when Hall may be able to return to the field.

Giants' Leon Hall: Experimenting at free safety
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

During 7-on-7 periods, Hall received extensive work at free safety alongside strong safety Landon Collins in the base and nickel defenses, the Newark Star-Ledger reports.

With Darian Thompson (shoulder) sidelined for at least a week, the Giants need to find a free safety, and the veteran cornerback could be the solution. If Hall were to wind up starting, he'd have some IDP upside.

Giants' Leon Hall: Signed by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) signed with the Giants on Thursday, Dan Salomone of Giants.com reports.

Hall spent the entirety of his nine-year career thus far in Cincinnati, where he racked up 470 tackles, 26 interceptions, 112 passes defensed, and five forced fumbles. The 31-year-old underwent back surgery earlier this offseason that may hamper his availability throughout training camp, but he's set to provide a veteran presence in the Giants' secondary while Eli Apple, Janoris Jenkins, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie lead the cornerback corps.

Leon Hall: Underwent offseason back surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall underwent back surgery earlier in the offseason, NFL.com's Chris Wesseling reports

According to the source, the surgery was to correct an issue with a disc in his back that had nagged him late in 2015. Hall isn't the cover corner he used to be, but can still patrol the slot effectively, as evidenced by yet another above-average coverage grade per ProFootballFocus.com for his performance last season. In fact, there isn't a season in which Hall hasn't graded out as at least above-average. Nonetheless, the Michigan product is entering his 10th season in the league, and had already experienced an Achilles tear in both 2011 and 2013 before aggravating his back. Coupled with the likelihood of him taking his time to land one last pay day, it may still be a while before Hall finds a new home.

Bengals' Leon Hall: Active in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) is active Sunday against the 49ers.

After missing practice Wednesday, Hall put in a limited practice Thursday before putting in a full session Friday. On the season, the Bengals' right cornerback has 40 tackles to go with two interceptions.

Bengals' Leon Hall: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) is inactive Sunday against the Browns.

Hall only saw practice time this week in a limited fashion Friday, so his absence doesn't come as a major surprise. In his stead, Adam Jones (foot) will likely start at cornerback opposite Dre Kirkpatrick (ankle), who is also active for the contest.

Bengals' Leon Hall: Active for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) is active for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh.

Hall will play, but with only 13 tackles on the year, he has yet to make a huge impact on the stat sheet.

Bengals' Leon Hall: Listed as questionable this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall (back) practiced fully Friday, but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Hall's Week 8 status, either way, will be confirmed as Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff approaches, but with just 13 tackles in five games to date, the cornerback's fantasy utility is limited to deeper IDP formats.

October 28, 2015 05:17 PM
Bengals' Leon Hall: Limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hall was a limited participant at practice Wednesday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

Hall was a limited participant in practice in weeks past, but wasn't able to suit up for that week's game, so his practice Wednesday shouldn't indicate his status one way or another. That determination will likely come closer to Friday, so fantasy owners should check back in then.
