Former Virginia Tech cornerback DeAngelo Hall is the latest injury for the Redskins after he sprained ligaments in his ankle.
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
As hot weather struck for the first time at training camp, injuries also began to pile up, with some of the Redskins' big names sitting on the sideline during practice.
DeAngelo Hall spent much of Tuesday at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center sporting his safari hat and a walking boot.
Hall, a Virginia Tech product, hurt his ankle on Monday and said that he has "some sprained ligaments" in his ankle, but nothing more severe.
"There's no tear," he said. "I just have to go day-by-day and week-by-week. I don't want to push anything out here."
Another top player went down Tuesday. Offensive lineman Trent Williams had to leave with a hand injury. He sprained the hand before training camp, and re-aggravated it during practice.
"I just fell on it," he said. "It's really nothing. It just stung a little bit. I'll be fine."
Other players who missed action were veterans Donte Stallworth and Adam Gettis, both of whom are recovering from hamstring injuries. Gettis said he should be available later this week. Stallworth's status remains up in the air.
The top injury of concern, though, belongs to Hall.
The cornerback said that the injury wasn't a high ankle sprain, but was more to the back of his ankle.
"Some movements, I'm good with," he said. "Some movements, I can't put any pressure on it. It's a bit funky. I've never had this particular kind of injury before. It's all kind of new to me."
Hall suffered the injury on Monday while covering wide receiver Skye Dawson in a one-on-one drill. Dawson cut and Hall cut to follow and fell to the ground with the injury.
The recovery time for the injury was unclear, according to Hall.
"It could take a couple days, it could take a couple weeks," he said. "They are cool with me just sitting down for now and trying to give it time, give it some rest."
Hall also said that the diagnosis of a sprained ligament was better than his initial reaction on the field.
"I actually thought something tore," he said. "When I hit the ground, it was pretty painful. It was something I'd never felt before, so I was worried about it. But, nothing was (torn) and I was happy about that. The pain, I can deal with if need be, but I want to be pain free. I'll stay in the boot until they tell me I can come out."
Hall was able to have a laugh, though, when thinking about the injury.
"Some of the guys were like 'Well, you wanted a day off,'" he said. "I said 'Yea, I wanted a day off, but not like this.'"
