Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall, whose 2014 season was cut short by a torn Achilles tendon, is optimistic about being on the field on the first day of training camp. But he’s realistic about needing some time to get into football shape.

“I hope I’m ready to go the first day,” Hall said on 106.7 the Fan, via CSNWashington.com. “When I say wean me back in, I know they are going to monitor me. I know they are not going to just throw me out there and [have me] take all the reps with the [first team]. I’m just going to get out there and see how the body feels.”

Hall added, however, that he’s not going to do anything more than what the team wants him to do.

“I’m at the mercy of the trainers and coaching staff. So they’re going to kind of wean me back in slowly. But I’m excited to get back out there going with the guys,” he said.

Hall did not practice at all during minicamp or Organized Team Activities, which means no one knows just yet whether he’s going to be able to get back to full speed, at the age of 31 and coming off a serious injury. Hall’s status is one of the biggest questions in Washington heading into training camp.

  1. I’ve never been a huge fan of the way he handles himself on the field but he has started pretty much every game over his career and up until last season he had only missed a couple of games due to injury. I imagine that it takes a lot to start at CB for 10+ seasons in the NFL and really speaks to your talents and work ethic. (Tip of the cap)

  2. Hail to the Redskins and hail to DeAngelo who has quietly become a solid vet, a positive locker room influence, and a solid presence in the local community.

  3. Despite what is way too much taking on the field, especially early in his career Hall has really proven to be a very solid citizen. ZERO off the field issues or problems !
    He does a lot of community work with kids in his home town of Virginia Beach as well as the DC area.
    I certainly hope he beats the odds and is able to comeback play at an NFL level for the Redskins.

  4. With the Redskins having the 31st ranked DB backfield in the NFL last season and doing very little to augment their weak corners and safties, I as a Redkskin don’t feel to optimistic about Hall coming back or the skins having a good DB backfield this season. Oh well, there is always next seaon to look forward to.

  5. We’ve already seen this play out. He’ll have a great year…then he’ll get tagged for PEDs.

  6. Hopefully he bounces back quickly and provides some leadership for the improving Redskins defense.

    Ummm, they replaced both safeties and one of the starting corners. I’m not necessarily saying they ‘fixed’ everything but what offseason have you been paying attention to?
