Free agent CB Leon Hall is reportedly recovering from back surgery.
Per WCKY's James Rapien, Hall had an operation to "repair a disc injury that required epidurals late in the year." It's unclear when the procedure occurred, though it was likely in January. Although he turned 31 in December, Hall remained amongst the league's most effective slot corners last season. Hall has appeared in 29-of-32 games over the past two years, but has an injury history that includes two Achilles' tears. Apr 12 - 6:23 PM

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero guesses the Dolphins will be interested in free agent CB Leon Hall once his asking price comes down.

Hall has visited both the Cardinals and Cowboys, but he has yet to find anyone willing to match his asking price. A 31-year-old slot corner, Hall will likely have to settle for a short-term deal at considerably less than the $7.8 million he brought home last season. Hall is the No. 1 corner left on the market.

Free agent CB Leon Hall is visiting the Cowboys.

Hall visited the Cardinals on Monday. A slot-only corner at this point in his career, signing Hall would indicate Orlando Scandrick will play almost exclusively outside in his return from a torn ACL and MCL. The 31-year-old Hall is Rotoworld's No. 3 available corner.
Mar 15 - 11:23 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Cardinals will host free agent CB Leon Hall on Monday.

Hall, despite his advanced age (31), is easily one of the better free agents left on the market. He's become a very solid slot corner-only at this stage of his career. With Tyrann Mathieu coming off a torn ACL, Hall would be quality insurance and allow the Cardinals to bring Mathieu along slowly.

Bengals SCB Leon Hall (concussion, back) is probable for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Steelers.

Hall didn't miss any practice time despite his concussion. He'll match up with WR Markus Wheaton in the slot.
Jan 8 - 5:11 PM

Bengals SCB Leon Hall (back) is questionable for Week 14 against the Steelers.

Hall missed last week with the injury, but he looks on track to play against Pittsburgh after getting in a full practice Friday. It is not all roses for the secondary heading into an important divisional game. Adam Jones (foot, doubtful) is not going to play, and George Iloka is questionable with a groin injury.

Bengals CB Leon Hall has been named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 12.

Hall had an easy day against the Rams' anemic passing offense. He allowed all eight of the passes thrown at him to be caught, but they went for a total of 39 yards. Hall also pick-sixed Nick Foles and was graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 3 corner for Week 12. The soon-to-be 31-year-old has remained a steady presence despite tearing his Achilles' twice.

Bengals declared CB Leon Hall, WR Greg Little, WR Mario Alford, TE C.J. Uzomah, DT Marcus Hardison, DT Pat Sims, and DE Margus Hunt inactive for Week 6 against the Bills.

Hall has a back injury. All the others are healthy scratches.

According to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Leon Hall "is the most at risk of losing a starting spot" in the Bengals' secondary.

Beat writer Paul Dehner Jr. shares the opinion. Hall received a slightly positive pass-coverage grade from PFF in 2014, but is far from the borderline-shutdown force he was before tearing his Achilles' tendon twice. Hall turns 31 this December. Darqueze Dennard figures to be Hall's main competition at slot corner. For now, Pacman Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick's roles appear safe.

Bengals CB Leon Hall is in the NFL's concussion protocol this week.

It's a concern for Cincinnati playing on a short week. Hall plays slot corner in the Bengals' sub-package defense, which is where Andrew Hawkins does a lot of his damage. Hawkins (knee, thigh) is banged up, too, however. Hall seems unlikely to play Thursday night. The Bengals could turn to Pacman Jones in the slot with Dre Kirkpatrick or Darqueze Dennard playing on the outside.

Bengals CB Leon Hall left Sunday's Week 7 game at Indy with a back injury.

Hall, who has remarkably made an excellent return from another Achilles' tear, is questionable to return.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 02:12:00 PM

Bengals activated RCB Leon Hall (Achilles') from the active/PUP list.

The Bengals boasted Hall was ahead of schedule all offseason, and apparently weren't exaggerating. Provided he stays healthy, Hall will start opposite first-rounder Darqueze Dennard.
Thu, Jul 24, 2014 07:37:00 PM

Bengals RCB Leon Hall (PUP, Achilles') is expected to be activated within the week.

Coach Marvin Lewis has raved about Hall's recovery all offseason, and kept at it this week. Hall is now nine months removed from the injury that ended his 2013. With tears to both Achilles' now on his résumé heading into his age-29 campaign, Hall will be a question mark this season.
Tue, Jul 22, 2014 05:18:00 PM

Coach Marvin Lewis said RCB Leon Hall (Achilles') has had an "amazing" recovery.

Just like two years ago when Hall tore his left Achilles', he's ahead of schedule. Lewis said that if training camp started tomorrow, he thinks Hall would be able to participate. "He's done incredible again," Lewis said. We're still skeptical the 29-year-old Hall will retain effectiveness with two serious lower-leg injuries now on his resume.
Wed, Jun 11, 2014 11:04:00 AM

Bengals RCB Leon Hall (Achilles') remains on track to be ready for the start of training camp.

Hall is ahead of schedule, just as he was two years ago when he tore his left Achilles'. Hall, 29, has now suffered two serious lower-body injuries. The Bengals should be in the market for cornerback help early in this week's draft. Hall should be ready for Week 1, but his effectiveness is a question.
