Redskins declared DB DeAngelo Hall, LB Zach Brown (illness, knee, Achilles), OLB Ryan Anderson (knee), WR Robert Davis (concussion), DL Ziggy Hood (elbow), OG Kyle Kalis, and C Demetrius Rhaney inactive for Week 17 against the Giants.
Hall opened the season on the PUP because of an ACL tear he suffered in 2016, and he quickly fell out of the rotation after returning in Week 9. 34 and with several serious leg injuries in his past, this could be the end of the road for Hall. He is scheduled to be a free agent. Sun, Dec 31, 2017 11:33:00 AM

Redskins S DeAngelo Hall (knee, PUP) confirmed he'll make his season debut Week 9 against the Seahawks.

He hasn't played since suffering a torn ACL early last season. Hall began his career at cornerback before pivoting to safety a few years ago. The 33-year-old will probably be eased in after missing so much time, though the slumping Redskins could certainly use a lift in the secondary.

Redskins S DeAngelo Hall (knee, PUP) could return next week.

Hall hasn't had any setbacks in his recovery from 2016 knee surgery. He's on track to be activated in the next two weeks. With Washington not getting much from their safeties, Hall should have a role when healthy.

Redskins restructured S DeAngelo Hall's (ACL, reserve/PUP) contract.

Hall's salary was reduced from $2.2 million to $1.1 million, but the remaining salary is fully guaranteed. Still recovering from a knee injury, Hall will begin the season on the reserve/PUP, costing him at least the first six games.

Redskins S DeAngelo Hall (ACL) will open camp on the active/PUP list.

As will LB Houston Bates, who is also recovering from an ACL tear. Neither move is a surprise, and coach Jay Gruden has said it is possible Hall is forced to open the season on the PUP, which would cost him at least the first six games. Despite the injury, a June pay cut likely means Hall's roster spot is safe.

Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall has agreed to a pay cut.

Hall had been scheduled to count an exorbitant $5.1 million against the cap in the final year of his deal. He was never going to get that at 33 years old and coming off yet another serious injury as he recovers from a torn ACL.

Speaking Tuesday, Jay Gruden said DB DeAngelo Hall (torn ACL) could be forced to start the season on the reserve/PUP list.

Injured last Week 3, Hall is without a target date for a return. Hall has missed 31 of the past 48 games because of injury. He will count $5.1 million against the cap, and the Redskins have safeties D.J. Swearinger, Su'a Cravens and Will Blackmon on the roster. Not an impact player since transitioning from corner to safety, Hall could be forced to take a pay cut, or perhaps be cut outright.

An MRI confirmed Redskins FS DeAngelo Hall tore his ACL Week 3 against the Giants.

Hall seemed to be holding out hope he escaped without a serious injury Sunday night, but doctors always suspected a tear. Hall had looked good in his transition to safety, so his loss is a big one for an already thin safety corps. Hall is owed $4.25 million in 2017, the final year of his deal.

Redskins doctors believe FS DeAngelo Hall tore his ACL in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Giants.

Hall, however, stated that his knee "feels good," and he will wait for a Monday MRI to concede the rest of his season. The Redskins are thin at safety and could ill afford to lose Hall, who has successfully transitioned from cornerback.

Redskins FS DeAngelo Hall was forced from Washington's Week 3 game against the Giants with a right knee injury, and will not return.

Hall could put no weight on his right leg as he was helped off the field. It had the looks of a serious injury. Will Blackmon will finish the game at free safety.

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Tarik El-Bashir believes DeAngelo Hall has one of the starting safety spots locked down.

The Washington Post said the same in early April. The real question will come at the other safety position, where ex-Bronco David Bruton, run-stuffer Duke Ihenacho, and second-round pick Su'a Cravens will do battle in training camp.
Sat, May 21, 2016 10:43:00 AM

The Washington Post believes DeAngelo Hall is "currently set" to begin the year as the Redskins' starting free safety.

That's where Hall ended 2015, and the Redskins have yet to add meaningful competition. That could change in the draft, but the Redskins have talked up Hall's safety prowess all offseason. Long one of the highest paid cornerbacks in the league, Hall turns 33 in November.
Tue, Apr 5, 2016 03:04:00 PM

CSN Mid-Atlantic's Tarik El-Bashir believes DeAngelo Hall could open 2016 as a starter at safety for the Redskins.

Hall performed well after switching to safety late last season, and an offseason working at the position will only make him more comfortable. Coach Jay Gruden believes Hall can "solidify himself as one of the top safeties in the league." The spot next to Hall remains an open question. Dashon Goldson is unlikely to return at his current $8 million cap hit, and he is not starter quality at this point in his career. The Redskins should address the position in free agency or the draft.

Redskins DB DeAngelo Hall will remain at safety going forward.

Hall made the move to free safety following Week 11, and coach Jay Gruden liked what he saw. Gruden believes D-Hall is going to "solidify himself as one of the top safeties in the league" going forward. Going by Pro Football Focus' ratings, Hall was initially an adventure at safety before showing major improvement in Weeks 15-17. He wouldn't be the first big-name corner to make the transition to safety. Hall is due $4.25 million in 2016, but Gruden's comments suggest the Redskins will pay it.

Redskins FS DeAngelo Hall suffered a calf injury Week 16 against the Eagles.

Hall said rehab is going well, but he is not sure if he will play against the Cowboys. Coach Jay Gruden has already said he will consider sitting injured players, but Hall could use more snaps at his new free safety spot before the playoffs.
