DeAngelo Hall out “two days to two weeks” with sprained ankle

Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall was in a boot on Tuesday to protect his aching right ankle and the date of his return to the field is up in the air at this point.

An MRI showed that Hall sprained ligaments in his ankle and Tarik El-Bashir of CSNWashington reports that Hall is expected to miss anywhere from “two days to two weeks” while waiting for the ankle to heal. That kind of timeline suggests that Hall’s injury might allow him to play in a game but that the risk of making things worse isn’t worth it at this point of training camp.

“Certain movements, I’m good with,” Hall said. “Certain movements, I can’t put any pressure on it. It’s kind of funky. It’s all kind of new to me.”

Coach Mike Shanahan said that the medical staff doesn’t think it’s a serious injury and tackle Trent Williams gave the same report about the state of his left wrist. Williams aggravated a sprain in the wrist when he fell during Tuesday’s practice and was held out of the rest of the session while icing it. Williams called the injury “nothing,” while Shanahan said the team would check on the tackle’s condition Wednesday.

  3. I heard his recovery was already ahead of schedule … and that he’s a genetic freak who will make a Peterson-like comeback.

  4. Hakeem and Vic are going to light this fool up.

    Redtail fans, you did a ton of talking for a 0 playoff win season last year. Make sure you dont disappear when youre team is struggling to stay at .500 this year.

  5. @nohopeleft:

    You Giants fans are doing a lot of talking for a team that didn’t even make the playoffs last year.

  6. Anybody ever notice how logic guy always is within the first four posts of any given story, and all within ten minutes of the articles release? The Redskins are already a polarizing team, and his comments He provokes outrage, inflammatory debate, and unpleasantness on both sides, increasing traffic to these articles: traffic, which of course, translates directly into dollars for the writers. I’m not saying, I’m just saying.

    I’m pretty sure one “fan” did a lot of talking. And if you noticed, as soon as the Redskins lost in January and Griffin got injured (ie. the team was no longer “hot”), he went on hiatus for four months– until Griffin’s knee seemed to be recovering faster than expected (ie. they were getting “hot” again).
    Again, I’m not saying, I’m just saying. I’m also saying that if he is actually a Redskins fan, I will eat my own boxers, at work, in front of everybody.

  8. Beat ‘em, Swamp ‘em,
    Touchdown!

    Hey logical, the correct line is “Beat ’em, Stomp ’em, Touchdown! …”

    Some PC-type suggested the change a few years ago and many wimps ran with it.
