Gruden: DeAngelo Hall has bruised back; injury isn’t serious


As it turns out, Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall’s back injury was indeed just a bruise.

Coach Jay Gruden said Hall, who suffered the injury in practice on Sunday morning, was “a little sore” after somersaulting and landing on his back. According to Tarik El-Bashir of, Hall left the field on a cart.

But it appears all is about as well as could be hoped for the veteran cornerback.

“They carted him off just for the dramatic exit,” Gruden joked to reporters. “He could have walked off, made it a lot easier on me today.”

Hall has started all 16 games in each of the last four seasons for Washington.

    The Redskins have a suspect secondary.

    They carted him off because he damaged his walker in the fall. Hall is old and lost a step not near the DB he used to be. If Washington had anyone else he would be a safety.

    Kind of ironic to see a dirty player like him hurt his back for a change.

    He’s only 30? This is his 11th season and he played 3 years at VA Tech. 11+3=14


    Was he a prodigy at VA Tech?

    I know someone will say he turns 31 this year. That’ll still mean he was playing college ball at 17.
