DeAngelo Hall says Redskins misdiagnosed Malcolm Kelly's injury

We aren’t done with Malcolm Kelly drama for the year after all.

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said on ESPN 980 (via the Washington Post) earlier this month that Kelly’s hamstring injury was misdiagnosed by the Redskins staff.  (No word if Hall asked the radio hosts to take off their heels before the interview.)

“They thought it was one thing, he ended up finally getting a second
opinion three weeks later, and we find out it was something a heck of a
lot worse than they ever thought it was,” Hall said. “So we’re here babying Malcolm, saying, ‘He’s a baby, he’s a
baby, get out there and play,’ when he has a Grade 2 strain. And
they’re around here saying it’s a Grade 1 and there ain’t nothing wrong
with him.”

Hall didn’t use airquotes, but this is the second time a Redskins player has criticized the Mike Shanahan regime for minimizing an injury.  Pressed on Tuesday where Kelly tore his hamstring or strained it, Shanahan had this to say:

“What’s the difference? Tear, strain. Same thing. Just different terminology.”

    Breaking News… DeAngelo Hall remains incredibly overrated.

    Shanny is losing the team……..

    DH might have sucked for you guys but he’s been pretty damn decent for the skins. Has had two picks this preseason already. Looks primed for a good year.

    The Redskins misdiagnosed DeAngelo Hall as a good corner.

    youre trying to hard to be as unfunny as florio. stick to the “news” and thats all you should worry about.
    The Raiders are just jealous that they were the team this time that was used for a payday. Hall has played just fine for us this year.
    that being said..I hope he shuts up. Im tired of hearing players like Hall, Ward, Haynesworth and others run their mouths to the media.

    So, in addition to being an unqualified corner, he’s now an unqualified doctor?

  7. Poopstain_Chuck says: Aug 31, 2010 5:12 PM

    Hey RaiderClay, how are those Redskins retreads working out for you? Raiders fans have no room to talk shit.

  8. Birdbrainsnj says: Aug 31, 2010 5:18 PM

    This overrated piece of crap can’t stop running his month. No one cares!

  9. spennyhatch says: Aug 31, 2010 5:19 PM

    The only ting “misdiagnosed” was Kelly’s ability to play football at the nfl level.

    The Redskinsa re like the Titanic. A lot of hype but jinxed. This franchise did something to someone because it seems like there’s always something weird going on with them. I don’t see this drama and chirping with a lot of the other good teams. I mean, teams have their issues but not to the lenght they do. Oh well, 4th place in the NFC East is where they’re heading.

  12. AlphaQ2 says: Aug 31, 2010 5:36 PM

    Like D. Hall and all, but it wasn’t “misdiagnosed”. The problem was the hammy. What Hall was saying is that the the injury was worse than the doctors thought. I guess D. Hall thinks “misdiagnosed” is a 25 cent doozy.

    By definition a muscle strain is a tear: Shany is correct about that. Although his staff judgement obviously was not in this instance. Funny how the media likes to play the word game to make a victim out of one individual and a villain out of the other individual. Anyway, here is the definition of muscle strain and their grades in case anyone is interested.
    An acute tearing injury to muscle. Usually associated with a small amount of bleeding (haematoma) into the injured muscle tissue.
    reference: http://www.biology-online.org/dictionary/Muscle_strain
    A first-degree (grade I) injury is a stretching of the muscle (strain) with few torn fibers and no loss of strength. Second-degree (grade II) strains involve a greater number of injured muscle or tendon fibers with noticeable loss of strength; however, the ligament or muscle remains partially intact.
    A third-degree (grade III) injury is complete disruption (rupture) of the ligament or muscle resulting in complete functional loss of the affected muscle or tendon.

    Shanny’s a dope.
    That said, Hall has never known when to STFU.

  16. Poo Flinging Monkey says: Aug 31, 2010 5:43 PM

    When history looks back on the 2010 season, the worst signing will not be Antonio Bryant, it will be Mike Shanahan.
    Steve Spurrier will have a better lifetime record as Redskins coach than Shanny.

  17. NoKoolaidCowboy says: Aug 31, 2010 5:49 PM

    Shut up Hall! Not many of us want to hear from a dude that can’t handle being around tall women. Idiot.

  18. warpath21 says: Aug 31, 2010 6:19 PM

    HEHEHE! … and we spent how long discussing Mike Wise today? D Hall may be right but you can’t suggest that he was calling out the Redskins of downplaying the injury intentionally. The AH comparison suggests that. Come on now.
    Hey Rosenthal… thank your boy Florio for the spotlight to get turned on you Sports Writers for once. Uh oh… I know you already know it’s not good for you and your ‘fancy pen’ colleagues. Gag him Rosenthal! Do it for the sake of your craft. And when you see the Alexander dummy from the Post… give him a wedgy! LA is the wave of the future so watch and learn partNAH!

    Does Dr. Hall really do anything other than talk anymore?? When the news about him consists of his medical opinion and the fact he has to have women take their shoes off around him to make himself feel taller and more of a man, tells me this guy has to be on his way to playing corner on Madden rather than on ANOTHER NFL team

  20. madstork43 says: Aug 31, 2010 6:37 PM

    You Foreskin fans are delusional if you think this a-hole is a quality corner. And, I’d rather have Jason Campbell and Rock Cartwright than that locker-room cancer and ridiculously over-rated jerk on my team any day.
    You guys think he has good coverage skills? Why don’t you go back and take a look at the game where Eddie Royal, a rookie playing in his first pro game, beat that LOSER Hall like a freaking bongo drum ALL GAME!!
    Good luck with your crappy team while we win the AFC West with the QB rat-face Shanahan basically GAVE AWAY, while Donnie Mac plays maybe 8 games TOPS after your O-line gets him killed.

    Who cares what he said, and its not like he is bashing the organization or Shanahan. He was just making a statement on what happened. Hes not pointing fingers
    p.s. all of your jokes are horrible ….except russrpm ,that sh!t is funny !!

  23. CH³NO² says: Aug 31, 2010 7:01 PM

    MEangelo……..shut up and play ball. You aren’t a doctor, you’re a thug cornerback. Stick with what you know….which isn’t much.

  24. eaglesnoles05 says: Aug 31, 2010 7:33 PM

    A strain and a tear are absolutely the same thing, indeed. Shannahan is correct.

  25. DieHardSkinsFan21 says: Aug 31, 2010 7:47 PM

    I hope Hall learns to shut his mouth. He just isn’t that good to be running his yapper.

  26. CHIEF ZEE says: Aug 31, 2010 7:56 PM

    DeAngelo Hall is rich and doesn’t give a f**k about any of you haters!

  27. Poopstain_Chuck says: Aug 31, 2010 8:01 PM

    The funniest part about this is that he said it the day of the Ravens game and it’s just now reached PFT. All this site is doing is trying to stir up more drama for the Redskins. All of the haters can keep hating, but Shanny has full control of this team and will be successful for a long time to come.

    That statement would pretty much apply to almost every player in the NFL which is why I hate it so much!

    LOL, you should be a comedian! Don’t stress b/c when Campbell doesn’t do it for you guys, you still have Colt Brennan.

    anything posted about the 4skin so called football team is comical. Meangelo is just an overpaid thug who is going to be toast all season long baby.
    He sucks and the 4skins again threw a ton of $$ at him for some reason. Another brilliant move which is why this org is going nowhere for many many yrs to come…HAIL SUCKAS AND THUGS!!!!LMFAO.
