Redskins' DeAngelo Hall hurts back

August, 10, 2014
RICHMOND, Va. -- Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall injured his back during this morning's practice and was carted from the sidelines to the facility. Hall fell hard to the ground after defending a pass play, and as he stood on the sidelines, his back bothered him more.

 A Redskins spokesman later said Hall had been examined and suffered a bruise and was receiving treatment. Coach Jay Gruden will update Hall’s situation in his regularly-scheduled press conference at 3:50 p.m.

Tracy Porter replaced Hall during the rest of the full-team work. Hall, who is having a solid camp, is the Redskins’ No. 1 corner and is coming off a strong season. The Redskins need him to stay healthy with Porter coming off offseason shoulder surgery and still not ready to hit full-time. The Redskins are high on rookie corner Bashaud Breeland, but the fourth-round pick is still learning the position in the NFL.
