The Washington Redskins beat the New York Giants in a close game, 29-27, Sunday but could lose DeAngelo Hall for the rest of the 2016 season due to an ACL injury.
Hall made the declaration himself according to Josina Anderson on Twitter.
“#Skins CB DeAngelo Hall just told me he was told he tore his ACL, but he says he is getting an MRI …AND..he seems to be walking fine,” Anderson tweeted so it’s confusing if Hall was just joking or there is a serious injury.

Washington Post also reported the same noting that team doctor Dr. James Andrews that they think Hall had torn his ACL but more will be revealed after an MRI on the knee in the following days.
“We think you tore your ACL. It kind of feels like you did,” Hall stated to reporters referring to the team doctors initial comments on his injury.
The team thought it was just a sprained right knee during the play in the second quarter and he was seen walking around the sidelines. He was never reinserted back in the game against the Giants.
While NFL rumors state a possible torn ACL, the injury could still be a minor one and he can return for the Redskins this season.
Hall played cornerback for most of his career but was moved to the safety position this season.
If Hall misses many games this season, it’s going to be bad news for the Redskins who also lost Bashaud Breeland and Shawn Lauvao in the game versus the Giants.
