DeAngelo Hall out at least 3-4 weeks with toe injury
When Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall suffered a non-contact injury on Thursday night against the Giants, there was immediate speculation that he had suffered another torn Achilles tendon. Fortunately, Hall’s injury turned out not to be that serious.
But Hall’s injury is still fairly significant: Washington head coach Jay Gruden said on a conference call this afternoon that Hall has a Grade 2 partial tear in toe that could force him to miss three or four weeks, or possibly longer. It’s still unclear whether Hall will need surgery.
That’s bad news for the team and for Hall, who has started all three games this season. Hall also started the first three games of last year before his Achilles injury ended his season.
Bashaud Breeland and Will Blackmon will get more playing time in Washington’s secondary while Hall is out.
