DeAngelo Hall injured at Redskins training camp

RICHMOND – Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said an MRI exam on Tuesday afternoon revealed sprained ligaments in the back of his ankle. 

He said he’ll be sidelined anywhere from two days to two weeks. 

“Certain movements, I’m good with,” Hall said. “Certain movements, I can’t put any pressure on it. It’s kind of funky. It’s all kind of new to me.” 

Hall, who was injured in practice Monday, sported an immobilizing boot and did not participate in the morning walkthrough or the afternoon practice. He did, however, watch both sessions from the sidelines.

“A lot of guys were joking, ‘Yeah, you wanted a day off,’" Hall said with a smile. "I wanted a day off but not like this. I was starting to feel good, get into football shape. It’s a shame I got to sit down for a little bit and rest.”

Coach Mike Shanahan said the medical staff does not believe the injury is serious but the team also won’t take any chances.

“You never know with those ankles,” Shanahan said.

Some other news and notes from the Bon Secours Training Center:

  • Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams aggravated an existing left wrist sprain late in practice when he landed on it awkwardly. Williams did not return to the drills had the wrist wrapped in ice. Williams said “it’s nothing. I’ll be fine.” Shanahan voiced a little more concern, saying, “Right now it’s a little it’s a little bit sore. We’ll see how it is tomorrow.”
  • Shanahan said the team has not decided whether it will sign veteran linebacker Nick Barnett, who worked out for team officials Tuesday. “Sounds like it was a pretty good workout,” Shanahan said. “So that’s a positive. We have a couple of coaches that know him well. That’s one of the reasons we brought him in.”
  • RB Chris Thompson (ACL), OG Adam Gettis (hamstring), LB Jeremy Kimbrough (hamstring) and WR Donte’ Stallworth (hamstring) did not practice. S Jordan Pugh left practice late in the session because he was feeling ill, Shanahan said.
  • RB Tristan Davis told Shanahan on Tuesday morning that he was retiring. Officially, Davis was placed on the league’s exempt/left squad list, according to NFL records. “He said his heart wasn’t in football anymore, so he retired,” Shanahan said. “Unless he changes his mind, that’s where he’s at.”
