Leon Hall’s rehab progresses to all football drills


The Bengals have been linked to some of the top cornerbacks in the draft as they make their way through the maze of pre-draft visits while one of their current cornerbacks is making his way back from a torn Achilles.

Leon Hall tore his Achilles for the second time in Week Seven last season and has been rehabbing the injury since then in hopes of making it back to the field in time of training camp and the regular season. That process took a step forward recently with Geoff Hobson of the team’s website reporting that Hall has been cleared to do all football drills.

Hall’s return to health would be a boost to the Bengals defense, but it probably won’t dissuade them from considering a cornerback in the first round next month. Hall turns 30 this year, Terence Newman turns 36 and Dre Kirkpatrick has yet to live up to expectations after the Bengals made him a first-round pick in 2012. Adding Kyle Fuller or Darqueze Dennard to the mix would give the Bengals enviable depth at the position next season.

Hall and Kirkpatrick are two of three cornerbacks, Jonathan Joseph is the other, that the Bengals have taken in the first round during Marvin Lewis’ tenure as head coach. That’s the most at any one position during that span.

  1. Another Bungal of a pick. This guy is done, sorry to say his best years are behind him. Welcome to McDonalds, will be his slogan soon enough.

  2. Nice to see Hall’s hard work pay off. When it tore on the opposite foot he was able to turn in a great season and didn’t miss a beat. As for redskin fan, I’m sure he OWNS a franchise were u can mop floors like your team does but hey next week u can move up doing fries!!

  3. Lewis: “Hall, let’s start you off with some simple interception drills. Dalton, get out here and throw like you normally do.”
