With cornerback Jonathan Joseph gone via free agency, Leon Hall became the top defensive player in Cincinnati.
And now he’s gone, too.
Adam Schefter of ESPN first reported, and PFT has confirmed, that Hall suffered a ruptured Achilles’ tendon against the Steelers on Sunday. Hall will miss the balance of the season.
And so the best cornerback on the team becomes Pacman Jones, if/when he’s able to play after suffering a hamstring injury in the only game he has played since injuring his neck during the 2010 season.
Hall has played in every game of his five-year career. He signed a five-year, $39 million contract in September, as he prepared to enter the final year of his rookie deal.
