Washington cornerback DeAngelo Hall will miss three to four weeks with a sprained toe, head coach Jay Gruden announced Friday (link via CSNMidAtlantic.com).
Hall, who has started all three of Washington’s games this season, suffered the injury to his right foot in the third quarter of the team’s 32-21 loss to the Giants on Thursday night. This is the second straight season in which injuries will limit Hall, who didn’t miss a game from 2010-13. The 31-year-old sat out all but three games in 2014 because of a torn Achilles.
Hall has 16 tackles this year and has earned a positive grade from Pro Football Focus (subscription required), which ranks him 22nd out of 64 corners who have played at least 50 percent of defensive snaps in 2015. His loss should hamper Washington, though it’s not exactly facing a litany of great quarterbacks over the next handful of weeks. Other than Matt Ryan, whom Washington will deal with in Week 5, the club will match up against Sam Bradford, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and Jameis Winston before its Week 8 bye.
