Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall will be sidelined for at least a few weeks because of the toe injury he suffered against the Giants.
Hall sprained a toe on his right foot in the third quarter of Thursday night’s 32-21 loss at MetLife Stadium. Friday’s MRI revealed a Grade 2 partial tear, according to Coach Jay Gruden, and surgery is a possibility.
“He’s going to go see a foot specialist and get it checked out,” Gruden said. "The specialist will review [the MRI]. It will take some time. We don’t know if he’ll need surgery yet or not; the specialist will let him know. We’re expecting [him to miss] at least 3-4 weeks [but] it could be longer.”
The injury occurred when the 31-year-old Hall, who missed most of last season with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon, planted his foot on the turf and attempted a sudden change of direction. He had to be helped to the sideline and left the locker room after the game wearing a walking boot.
With Hall out, Gruden said the team will rely more on second-year corner Bashaud Breeland, reserve Justin Rogers and possibly promote a player from the practice squad.
