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.
