RICHMOND—Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall tweaked his groin muscle and left knee and did not return to Thursday’s joint practice with the Texans.
Hall watched the remainder of the three-hour long session from the sidelines. Afterward, the 31-year-old headed to the facility for further evaluation.
“I’m going to get checked out, figure out what’s the issue,” Hall said after signing autographs for 15 minutes. “Achilles’ feels good, everybody; I didn’t hurt my Achilles. But definitely my groin is hurting a little bit right now. My knee is a little sore.”
Hall added: “I don’t feel it’s anything too major, but it definitely hurt enough for me to have to limp off.”
Hall said his groin was feeling “tight” prior to practice, but decided to suit up because the team already was without Bashaud Breeland (knee), David Amerson (shoulder) and Tevin Mitchel (shoulder).
“Just not doing anything for a couple of months tends to do that to you a little bit,” Hall said, referring to his lengthy layoff due to a twice-torn Achilles. “It’s a process. I know we’re kinda banged up. I probably would have been out even earlier because I wasn’t feeling that great. We’re so down on numbers, we got to get out there and fight through it. And that’s what I was trying to do when I tweaked it a little more.”
Hall was injured while backpedaling and making a cut to cover a receiver. He immediately went down and was helped by trainers to the sideline, where he remained until practice ended.
